Bus driver rescues barefoot baby walking alone on footpath

Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

Police said the boy's mother, who may have been suffering from mental health issues, left the boy outside, and that the baby was placed with his father after the rescue, according to WITI.

The Milwaukee County Transit Service driver had been on her route when she noticed the child wandering the streets without shoes. Hopefully, it'll be the last time it's needed.

A look of concern covers Ivic's face in the video when she first sees the infant meandering along the sidewalk of the highway overpass near 4th and Mitchell streets.

The child slows down for a moment then begins to run again. The child was barefoot - and wearing just a onesie and diaper.

Inexplicably, a baby boy is running along a narrow sidewalk on a highway overpass.

Transfer: Man Utd to complete shocking move for Coutinho
That's because some of the bonus clauses they are entitled to following Coutinho's departure would be rendered obsolete. The Spanish giants paid Liverpool £105 million upfront for Coutinho , with the rest being paid in add-ons.

The temperature was below freezing and Ivic knew she had to stop her bus and save the baby boy, who was less than 1 year old, MCTS said.

She suddenly stopped the bus and dodged traffic to rescue the baby.

"Oh my God. Oh my God". 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. "She did the right thing", Abele said. "I am shaking", Ivic said in the video as she sat down in the driver's seat with the baby. "I have my children too", Ivic said.

Ivic is being honored for her act of kindness with an MCTS Excellence award.
