Bus driver rescues toddler wandering on USA overpass in freezing conditions

Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

Video shared by the Milwaukee County Transit System shows bus driver Irena Ivic stopping her bus to rescue a crying child that was wandering barefoot down a highway overpass early on December 22, 2018. He was wearing just a onesie and a diaper. Surveillance video from the bus shows Ivic's view of the boy as he ran over a freeway overpass.

"Oh my God, I was so upset", she told KTLA sister station WITI in Milwaukee.

The MCTS said in a statement that the baby was unharmed.

As Ivic called for help, a passenger gave up her coat to keep the girl warm before police and firefighters arrived.

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.

Criminal Minds to End With Season 15
The Criminal Minds team will film the final 10 episodes this spring to film straight through after Season 14 is completed. Even so, Messer expects the series finale to be a "tearjerker".

Police say the boy had been left outside by his mother, who may have been suffering from a mental health crisis. When police gathered near his home, he noticed his child was not there and ran outside.

The parents were eventually reunited with the child and no charges have been filed.

On Thursday afternoon, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and MCTS officials honored Ivic. "She did the right thing", Abele said. "I don't take that kind of compassion for granted".

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