Bus Driver Helps Baby Boy Found Wandering Alone On Freeway Overpass

Transit video shows the boy toddling down the overpass.

An unlikely hero has rescued a barefoot baby walking alone on a footpath in the freezing cold.

In the annotated video from the Milwaukee County Transit System uploaded to YouTube, viewers see Ivic-Drobnjak cradle the child as a young female passenger offers her coat and the two bundle the baby up. She scooped the baby up in her arms and ran back to the bus. "I'm shaking." One passenger responds: "Oh, I am too".

Police say the child had been left outside by his mother who may have been suffering from a mental health crisis.

Authorities reunited the baby boy with his father.

Neither the boy's, nor his parents' identities have been released by authorities.

This was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years.

A passenger gave her coat to help keep the boy warm as Ivic called for help.

Ivic-Drobnjak's Facebook profile says she's from Prokuplje, a city in southern Serbia.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and MCTS officials honored Irena Ivic for her actions a few weeks ago, all of which were recorded on the cameras from her bus. She carried him to safety, bringing him to her bus.

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

"Irena Ivic did a lot more than her job, she did the right thing".

This is not the first time a Milwaukee County Transit System driver has saved a child.
