Ivic brought the baby to the bus, where a passenger offered her coat to the child to keep warm. "I find a child and upset and if I have the same situation again, I will of course again help", said Ivic.
MCTS executive Chris Abele, in a press conference Thursday, commended Ivic's actions. "Authorities eventually reunited the baby with its father", Sliker said.
"She did a lot more than her job. And when I saw him, I pulled over my bus and immediately picked up him", said Ivic.
"If it's a sad thing that its the ninth time than an MCTS driver has had to help a lost child get back to their family it is an extraordinary thing that we have drivers like Irena who are there to do it without hesitation", Abele added.
