Wisconsin bus driver rescues child

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

Irena Ivic, the bus driver, spotted the baby on a Milwaukee street at around 8 a.m. on December 22.

As the bus sat waiting for police and EMS responders to arrive, one passenger walked up to Ivic as she held the baby in the driver's seat.

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.

ABC7 reported the boy was later reunited with his father.

A Facebook post by Milwaukee County Transit System said the temperature was below freezing and all the child was wearing was a nappy and a onesie.

Neither the boy's, nor his parents' identities have been released by authorities. I'm shaking, ' she says.

The baby quickly fell asleep in the driver's arms as emergency services were called. The passenger can be seen in the video giving up her coat and wrapping the baby in it. "I have my children too", Ivic said.

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

Originally from Serbia, Ivic has lived in Milwaukee for over a decade and been an employee of MCTS for the past five.

The lost child was the ninth lost or missing child found by Milwaukee County Transit System drivers in recent years, officials said. "And if I find myself in the same situation again, I will, of course, help again".
