Milwaukee bus driver rescues wandering toddler on freeway overpass

Milwaukee bus driver rescues wandering toddler on freeway overpass”

A Facebook post by Milwaukee County Transit System said the temperature was below freezing and all the child was wearing was a nappy and a onesie.

Bus driver Irena Ivic had started her morning just like any other when she was shocked to see the baby boy on the side of the road in Milwaukee in the USA state of Wisconsin in December.

Ivic stopped her bus, ran across the street and picked up the child. One even offered her coat to keep the baby warm.

The baby girl was unharmed.

After a period of time, emergency officials are seen arriving before they take the child, fast asleep in the driver's arms, with them.

"I couldn't believe that somebody left the child on the street", Ivic said.

From a distance on her regular morning route on Milwaukee's south side, just after 8 a.m., she saw him: a baby boy alone running along a freeway overpass sidewalk. Authorities eventually reunited the boy with his father.

Milwaukee police told FOX6 News no charges were filed in this case.

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell. Another security camera captured her reaction in the driver's seat.

"She did a lot more than her job. She did the right thing", he said of the five-year veteran with the service. MCTS later learned the baby is less than a year old.

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