Video shows bus driver rescuing baby wandering alone near road

Bus driver Irena Ivic had started her morning just like any other when she was shocked to see the baby boy on the side of the road in Milwaukee in the USA state of Wisconsin in December.

The child fell asleep in Ms Ivic's arms as she waited for emergency services to arrive.

A passenger noticed the youngster was shivering so put her jacket around her to keep her warm.

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. "I am shaking", Ivic said in the video as she sat down in the driver's seat with the baby.

A Milwaukee bus driver went above the call of duty when she stopped to save an unlikely would-be passenger: a baby.

The baby girl was unharmed. The boy was chilled after spending time outside in the freezing temperatures.

Irena Ivic-Drobnjak is being praised for her immediate action which may have saved the child's life.

Ivic quickly ran across the busy street, stopping traffic in the process, to grab the cold and crying child. She scooped the baby up in her arms and ran back to the bus.

Police said the girl had been left outside by her mother, who is thought to be suffering from a mental health crisis.

NOTE: Police first said the baby was a boy but later clarified that the child is actually a girl.

ABC7 reported the boy was later reunited with his father.
