An alert Milwaukee bus driver came to the rescue of a toddler found wandering barefoot on a freeway overpass in frigid temperatures.

Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver Irena Ivic was shocked by what she witnessed around 8 a.m. on December 22nd.

Transit video showed the boy walking down an overpass.

Ivic stopped her bus and darted across the busy street to pick up the child, who was crying.

Another passenger brought her jacket up to the front of the bus to help the boy warm up.

Ivic sat talking to the coat-swaddled baby, stroking her hair. Authorities eventually reunited the boy with his father.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele awarded her with a commemoration plaque while offering a glowing appraisal of the employee's efforts to save the lost child.

Neither the boy's, nor his parents' identities have been released by authorities. The passenger can be seen in the video giving up her coat and wrapping the baby in it.

"I couldn't believe that somebody left the child on the street", Ivic said. Abele said this was the ninth lost or missing child found by drivers in recent years.

"Thank you, Irena and all members of the MCTS team, for your compassion, commitment to the community, and MCTS Excellence", MCTS officials said via a statement given to WISN-TV. "I am shaking", Ivic said in the video as she sat down in the driver's seat with the baby.

"I'm just grateful I was in the right place at the right time", Ivic said at a commendation ceremony held in her honor on Thursday.
