Bus Driver Helps Baby Boy Found Wandering Alone On Freeway Overpass

Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

A bus driver for the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) was hailed for rescuing a baby girl found wandering the streets alone on the city's south side - and the entire episode was captured on camera.

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.

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.

Security video showed the boy toddling down the overpass. Ivic-Drobnjak stops her bus and jumps out, stops traffic and runs toward the crying boy who seems to know she's coming for him; he stops and looks toward her. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best". She runs up to him, he stretches out his arms and she takes him into hers and darts back to the bus.

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

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

In video released by the MCTS, you can see Ivic driving down the street when she spots the small girl, who was less than a year old and dressed only in a onesie. "She did the right thing", he said of the five-year veteran with the service.
