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. Security video shows the girl toddling down the overpass. Surveillance camera footage from inside the bus shows a concerned passenger waiting by the door when Ivic returned with the boy in her arms. The baby was unharmed. Authorities said the child was cold and frightened, but otherwise OK.

WITI spoke with Hasan Ali Abdul Kasim, the baby's father.

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

Ivic said she was grateful she could keep the boy safe, MCTS said in a video about the incident. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best".

When asked about what happened Ivic herself, who is originally from Serbia, told reporters, "If I find myself in same situation, I will of course help, always". MCTS later learned the baby is less than a year old.

MCTS drivers have found nine lost or missing children in recent years, according to their website. This post has been updated.
