A video shows a Milwaukee bus driver rescuing a young child

The entire incident that took place in the U.S., was caught on video.

A female bus driver in the USA stopped her daily routine to pick up a passing 19-month-old toddler allegedly left outside in the cold all alone by her mother, camera footage revealed on Thursday.


Irena Ivic was driving her regular route on December 22, when she spotted a child running down the street alone, in below-freezing temperatures. Irena can be kissing the boy's forehold while cradling him in her arm.

As Ivic called for help, a passenger gave up her coat to keep the girl warm before police and firefighters arrived.


Ivic said she wouldn't hesitate to help if she were in the same situation again.

The child has since been reunited with her father. According to MCTS, this is the ninth such case in recent years where their drivers spotted lost children and alerted the cops. The boy or his parents' identities have not been released yet by authorities.


The child went missing after officials believe her mother had a mental health crisis, the transit system statement said. It's just the latest example of hero bus drivers in the city of Milwaukee. Video of a driver helping a blind man crossing the street had also gone viral earlier.
