Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

A passenger on Ivic's bus gave up her coat to keep the infant warm while they waited for firefighters, police and transit security officers to arrive, WISN-TV reports.

An on-duty bus driver in Milwaukee knew what she had to do when she saw a young boy when a baby wandering around alone near busy streets. The passenger can be seen in the video giving up her coat and wrapping the baby in it.

The child, who appeared to be less than one-year-old, was barefoot and wearing just a onesie and diaper.

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

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

Authorities reunited the baby boy with his father. When police gathered near his home, he noticed his child was not there and ran outside.

Milwaukee police told FOX6 News no charges were filed in this case. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best". "I don't take that kind of compassion for granted", said County Executive Abele. "And if I find myself in the same situation again, I will, of course, help again".

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

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