Newly launched video reveals the dramatic rescue of a child wandering alone by way of the streets of Milwaukee with no footwear.
A Milwaukee County Transit Service bus driver named Irena Ivic noticed the toddler strolling alone, carrying a purple onesie and a diaper in ”freezing temperatures” alongside her route on Dec. 22, in accordance with a information launch from the transit authority. Video of the rescue was launched Thursday.
A glance of concern covers Ivic’s face within the video when she first sees the toddler meandering alongside the sidewalk of the freeway overpass close to 4th and Mitchell streets.
Ivic will be seen within the video stopping her bus, operating throughout a avenue, selecting the infant up and bringing him again into the bus.
“I’m shaking,” one passenger will be heard saying within the video.
Authorities have since discovered that the infant is lower than a 12 months previous, in accordance with the discharge. Police stated the boy’s mom, who might have been affected by psychological well being points, left the boy exterior, and that the infant was positioned along with his father after the rescue, in accordance with WITI.
Neither the boy’s, nor his dad and mom’ identities have been launched by authorities.

Because the bus sat ready for police and EMS responders to reach, one passenger walked as much as Ivic as she held the infant within the driver’s seat. The passenger will be seen within the video giving up her coat and wrapping the infant in it.
When authorities arrived on the scene, the infant boy was quick asleep in Ivic’s arms and the passenger’s coat.
