Video shows bus driver rescue baby alone on freeway overpass

Video shows bus driver rescue baby alone on freeway overpass

Irena Ivic has seen a lot during her career as a Milwaukee County Transit System driver, but she was shocked by what she witnessed about 8 a.m. December 22.

A bus driver for Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is being hailed for rescuing a lost baby - and the entire episode was captured on camera.

Ivic quickly ran across the busy street, stopping traffic in the process, to grab the cold and crying child.

A passenger then gave the child her coat to help keep the girl warm until the fire and police departments arrived on the scene.

The baby girl was unharmed.

The boy fell asleep in Ivic's arms, MCTS said. "I couldn't believe that somebody left the child on the street".




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

From a distance on her regular morning route on Milwaukee's south side, just after 8 a.m., she saw him: a baby boy alone running along a freeway overpass sidewalk.

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best".

The parents were eventually reunited with the child and no charges have been filed.

"She did a lot more than her job".

Ivic has been in Milwaukee for 12 years - and an employee of MCTS for five years.
