MCTS officials say just before 8 a.m. on December 22 a bus driver spotted something shocking in front of her bus - a baby boy wandering alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell in Milwaukee, our Milwaukee affiliate WITI Fox 6 Now reports.

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 U.S. state of Wisconsin in December.

The video later shows Ivic stopping her bus, running across the street, picking up the crying child and carrying her to the bus. 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. Transit video shows the boy toddling down the overpass.

A Wisconsin bus driver is being recognized for her heroic actions. Authorities eventually reunited the boy with his father. Ivic then called authorities and the child fell asleep in her arms as they arrived on the scene.
