Milwaukee bus driver Irena Ivic rescued a young child she spotted wandering a freeway overpass

Milwaukee bus driver Irena Ivic rescued a young child she spotted wandering a freeway overpass

The Milwaukee County Transit Service driver had been on her route when she noticed the child wandering the streets without shoes. Security video shows the girl toddling down the overpass.

A Milwaukee bus driver is being hailed for rescuing a baby girl found wandering alone one the streets of Milwaukee's south side - and the entire episode was captured on camera.

The child, who appeared to be less than one-year-old, was barefoot and wearing just a onesie and diaper.

Authorities say the child was cold and frightened, but otherwise OK.

In the video, Ivic, a mother of two, can be heard saying, "I'm shaken". Police said the boy's mother left him outside, according to MCTS.

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.
