Milwaukee bus driver commended after rescuing toddler from frigid temperatures

The little one soon fell asleep in her arms, as seen in the video.

A Milwaukee bus driver is being hailed for rescuing a baby girl found wandering alone one the streets of Milwaukee's south side - and the entire episode was captured on camera.

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

A Facebook post by Milwaukee County Transit System said the temperature was below freezing and all the child was wearing was a nappy and a onesie.

Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) driver Irena Ivic spotted the boy, wearing only a red onesie and no shoes, running down the sidewalk at 8 a.m. on December 22, 2018. "I find a child and upset and if I have the same situation again, I will of course again help", said Ivic. Kasim told the station he believes his wife, who he said has a mental illness, took the baby to a church across the freeway and later forgot about her. When police gathered near his home, he noticed his child was not there and ran outside.
