Milwaukee bus driver rescues wandering toddler on freeway overpass

Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) driver Irena Ivic spotted the boy, wearing only a red onesie and no shoes, running down the sidewalk at 8 a.m. on December 22, 2018. He's wearing a red onesie and a diaper.

The rescue was captured on the bus surveillance cameras.

She runs across the street and picks up the crying boy, who was making his way around a corner, bringing him on board her bus.

A passenger on the bus took off her winter coat and draped it around the baby girl, who was cold to the touch.

"I'm shaking", one passenger can be heard saying in the video.

Authorities reunited the baby boy with his father. No identities were released by the local police.

Ivic said she was grateful she could keep the boy safe, MCTS said in a video about the incident.

Originally from Serbia, Ivic has lived in Milwaukee for over a decade and been an employee of MCTS for the past five. "He didn't know what to do or where to go". She scooped up the boy and carried him to the bus.

Ivic-Drobnjak cradles and rocks the child and just as the police arrive, the baby boy has fallen asleep.

"I have two lovely children and I am a human being and I find the child upset, and if I had the same situation again, I will, of course, again get help".

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell.

"There is no shortage of signals today to tell you to watch out for yourself and take care of yourself and there is an very bad lot of talk about division", he said.

The Milwaukee County Transit Service driver had been on her route when she noticed the child wandering the streets without shoes. All of us are better when we have compassion.
