Quick-thinking Milwaukee bus driver saves wandering baby, dramatic video shows

Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

Recently released security video from bus cameras shows Ivic jumping out of the vehicle to secure the child, who was wearing just a onesie and diaper in the frigid weather. While waiting for law enforcement to arrive on the scene, another passenger offers her coat to the baby. The little one soon fell asleep in her arms, as seen in the video.

So, she stopped the bus and got the child.

A Milwaukee County Transit Service bus driver named Irena Ivic saw the infant walking alone, wearing a red onesie and a diaper in "freezing temperatures" along her route on December 22, according to a news release from the transit authority. Besides being cold and scared, the baby was unharmed.

NOTE: Police first said the baby was a boy but later clarified that the child is actually a girl. The baby's mother had left it alone outside after suffering a reported mental health episode. When police gathered near his home, he noticed his child was not there and ran outside. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best". "I don't take that kind of compassion for granted".
