Bus driver rescues toddler wandering on United States overpass in freezing conditions

The Milwaukee County Transit System says the boy was wearing only a diaper and a onesie when bus driver Irena Ivic spotted him just before Christmas on December 22 a little before 8am.

Firefighters, police officers and transit security officers arrived at the scene soon thereafter.

The temperature was below freezing and Ivic knew she had to stop her bus and save the baby boy, who was less than 1 year old, MCTS said.

The baby girl was unharmed.

"I used to be a teacher and I have children of my own, so I'm so happy I was able to help this sweet, innocent baby", Ivic said.

MCTS executive Chris Abele, in a press conference Thursday, commended Ivic's actions.

This is the dramatic moment a bus driver rescues a baby girl that she spotted wandering alone on a street with no shoes or pants on.

"Oh my God, I'm shaking", Ivic is heard saying in the video as she holds the baby in her arms.

A Milwaukee bus driver went above the call of duty when she stopped to save an unlikely would-be passenger: a baby.

ABC7 reported the boy was later reunited with his father.

"She did a lot more than her job". Kasim told the station he believes his wife, who he said has a mental illness, took the baby to a church across the freeway and later forgot about her.

She said she was just glad she could keep him safe.

Abele said this was the ninth lost or missing child found by drivers in recent years.
