Bus Driver Helps Baby Boy Found Wandering Alone On Freeway Overpass

The Milwaukee County Transit System says the girl was less than a year old and wearing only a diaper and a onesie when bus driver Irena Ivic spotted him on December 22.

A Wisconsin bus driver is being hailed as a hero after she didn't hesitate to stop and run to the rescue of a barefoot baby walking alone on a freeway overpass.

The child, who was less than 1-year-old, was barefoot and wearing a onesie and diaper, according to MCTS.

Ivic quickly ran across the busy street, stopping traffic in the process, to grab the cold and crying child. She scooped up the boy and carried him to the bus. Surveillance camera footage from inside the bus shows a concerned passenger waiting by the door when Ivic returned with the boy in her arms. Security video shows the girl toddling down the overpass.

A passenger gave her coat to help keep the boy warm as Ivic called for help.

Speaking to Fox 6 Now, the child's father said he believes his wife forgot the toddler after going to the church across the freeway.

The parents were eventually reunited with the child and no charges have been filed.

"Thank you, Irena and all members of the MCTS team, for your compassion, commitment to the community, and MCTS Excellence", MCTS officials said via a statement given to WISN-TV.

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