The video then shows a passenger walking up from the back of the bus and taking off her jacket, which Ivic used to keep the toddler warm.

Irene Ivic rescued a baby who was walking barefoot and alone on December 22, 2017.

A bus driver for Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is being hailed for rescuing a lost baby - and the entire episode was captured on camera. She scooped the baby up in her arms and ran back to the bus.

On Thursday afternoon, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and MCTS officials honored Ivic. "I'm shaking." One passenger responds: "Oh, I am too". Authorities eventually reunited the baby with its father. He said he believes his wife, who he said has a mental illness, took the baby to the church just across the freeway and forgot about her.

Ivic brought the freezing infant onto her bus and called for help. "And when I saw him, I pulled over my bus and immediately picked up him", said Ivic. "I used to be a teacher and I have children of my own, so I'm so happy I was able to help this sweet, innocent baby", Ivic said. "She did the right thing", Abele said.

The boy Ivic rescued "is the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS Drivers in recent years", the release states.

"[The] baby was so scared, and cried", Ivic, a mother of two, explained during the MCTS award ceremony yesterday, published in full by ABC-affiliated news outlet WISN.

This is not the first time a Milwaukee County Transit System driver has saved a child.
