Bus driver saves toddler wandering alone on freeway overpass

The Milwaukee bus driver spotted the girl wandering along the side of the freeway overpass while plying through her route

A bus driver in the U.S. state of Wisconsin is being praised for rescuing a toddler she found wandering alone in freezing weather.

Video footage of the incident showed a concerned Ivic stopping the bus and going to pick up the little girl.

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.

Ivic stopped her bus, darted across the street, picked up the crying child and carried him onto her bus, where passengers could be heard saying, "Oh my God!"

Irena simply said she was grateful to be able to help, according to the statement.

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass.

Ivic brought the child back to the bus and waited for police.

The child is seen peacefully sleeping in the bus driver's arms, as members of the local police arrive and collect her.

The boy fell asleep in Ivic's arms, MCTS said. Officers later reunited the toddler with his father.

"I absolutely love kids". According to reports, the little boy was left outside by his mom, who was having a mental health crisis.

Irena Ivic was driving her regular route on December 22, when she spotted a child running down the street alone, in below-freezing temperatures.
