Milwaukee County Transit System driver Irena Ivic saw the barefoot toddler wandering dangerously close to the road all by herself and stopped her bus to rush to the child.

The Milwaukee County Transit System says the girl was less than a year old and wearing only a diaper and a onesie when bus driver Irena Ivic spotted him on December 22.

Video footage of the incident showed a concerned Ivic stopping the bus and going to pick up the little girl.

A female bus driver in the US stopped her daily routine to pick up a passing 19-month-old toddler allegedly left outside in the cold all alone by her mother, camera footage revealed on Thursday. Irena can be kissing the boy's forehold while cradling him in her arm.

"I'm shaking", the driver said.

One passenger could be seen giving her coat to warm the child. It's unclear how long he had been alone outside.

Ivic says that if faced with another lost child, she'd do it all over again.

Firefighters, police officers and transit security officers arrived at the scene soon thereafter. According to reports, the little boy was left outside by his mom, who was having a mental health crisis.

The child was eventually reunited with her father.

The boy fell asleep in Ivic's arms, MCTS said.
