Heroic Bus Driver Rescues Baby Wandering Streets Alone In The Cold

Bus driver rescues toddler wandering streets barefoot in the cold

Irena Ivic, a bus driver and mom from Milwaukee, WI, is being lauded as a hero after she saved a toddler who was wandering on a freeway overpass. Video shows her running across a busy street to scoop up the child.

Irena immediately stopped the bus and ran to the child who was running barefoot down the pavement. She carried the child to the bus, where passengers gathered in disbelief.

She alerted the police and as she waited for them to arrive, a passenger removed her jacket and gave it to the child to keep him warm.

As for Ivic, who moved from Serbia to Milwaukee 12 years ago, she said she was just doing what was right.

The baby was reunited with her father and Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele praised Ivic during a commendation ceremony, WISN reported. The little one soon fell asleep in her arms, as seen in the video.

"I absolutely love kids". Police said the baby's mother had left her outside while suffering from a mental health issue.

Irena Ivic was driving her regular route on December 22, when she spotted a child running down the street alone, in below-freezing temperatures. "I used to be a teacher and I have children of my own, so I'm so happy I was able to help this sweet, innocent baby", Ivic said.
