Bus Driver Rescues Baby Boy Wandering Busy Street Alone

Bus Driver Rescues Baby Boy Wandering Busy Street Alone

Everyone is calling her a hero after this bus driver rescues baby boy wandering in the middle of the street. Irena Ivic is a driver with the Milwaukee County Transit System. On the morning of December 22, 2018, Irena was on her route when she spotted something terrifying.

A barefoot toddler was running down the sidewalk on a highway overpass. There was no adult in sight. As soon as Irena saw the young boy outside in the below freezing temperature, she knew she needed to stop and help. This brave woman pulled the bus over and ran over to grab the baby. Authorities say he was less than a year old. Cameras on the bus and road capture Irena picking up the boy and bringing him back onto the bus.

The passengers are shocked at the sight of the child wearing just a onesie. One woman offers her jacket while the bus driver wraps him up in her arms. Everyone waits anxiously for authorities to arrive, but during that time the young boy falls asleep in Irena’s arms. It is obvious that he was looking for a safe place and he found it in this hero bus driver’s embrace.

If Irena had not been aware of her surroundings and stopped, who knows what would have happened to this lost child. I’m so glad that there are still great and compassionate people in this world that go out of their way to help others. Prayers for this boy that he gets the love and protection that he deserves.
