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. Transit video shows the boy toddling down the overpass. Ivic-Drobnjak stops her bus and jumps out, stops traffic and runs toward the crying boy who seems to know she's coming for him; he stops and looks toward her.

The bus driver was due to be honoured for her heroic actions this week. One even offered her coat to keep the baby warm.

A Milwaukee bus driver rescued a barefoot baby boy running alone near a highway, clad only in a onesie in freezing temperatures.

"Oh my god, oh my god", she said.

Ivic is being honored for her act of kindness with an MCTS Excellence award.

The MCTS said in a statement that the baby was unharmed.

After authorities arrived, they were able to reunite the baby with her father, Hasan Ali Abdul Kasim, FOX6 Milwaukee reported.

"She did a lot more than her job".

This is the ninth time a lost or missing child has been found by a Milwaukee County Transit System driver in recent years, according to the release.
