Video shows Milwaukee bus driver rescuing young child

Video shows Milwaukee bus driver rescuing young child

Irena Ivic was driving on a freeway overpass when she spotted a barefoot baby, Milwaukee County Transit System spokesman Matt Sliker said.

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 U.S. state of Wisconsin in December.

Ivic stopped the bus and ran out to scoop up the baby, as seen in a video released by the transit system.

As Ivic called for help, a passenger gives up her coat to keep the boy warm before police and firefighters arrived. She carried him to safety, bringing him to her bus.

The baby girl was unharmed.

According to authorities, the toddler was discovered to be less than a year old and it's believed the mother, who may have been suffering from mental health issues, may have left the boy outside.

NOTE: Police first said the baby was a boy but later clarified that the child is actually a girl.

"Oh my God, I was so upset", said Ivic. When police gathered near his home, he noticed his child was not there and ran outside.

ABC7 reported the boy was later reunited with his father.

In the video, Ivic, a mother of two, can be heard saying, "I'm shaken".

On Thursday, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele honored Ivic for her heroic actions.

Ivic has been in Milwaukee for 12 years - and an employee of MCTS for five years.

This is the ninth lost or missing child who has been found by MCTS drivers in recent years.
