Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

A Wisconsin bus driver is being hailed as a hero after she didn't hesitate to stop and run to the rescue of a barefoot baby walking alone on a freeway overpass. He was wearing just a onesie and a diaper.

Security video showed the boy toddling down the overpass.

"Oh my God, I'm shaking", Ivic can be heard saying when she returns to the bus with the girl. The baby was unharmed.

Another passenger brought her jacket up to the front of the bus to help the boy warm up.

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.

Authorities say the child was cold and frightened, but otherwise OK. When he saw the police gathered near his home, and noticed his daughter was not there, he ran outside. He was later reunited with his father, MCTS said.

Milwaukee police told WITI no charges were filed in the case.

The boy fell asleep in Ivic's arms, MCTS said.

MCTS executive Chris Abele, in a press conference Thursday, commended Ivic's actions.

Ivic has been in Milwaukee for 12 years - and an employee of MCTS for five years.

Abele said this was the ninth lost or missing child found by drivers in recent years.
