A Milwaukee County bus driver is being called a hero, after she rescued a toddler found wandering alone in the cold last month, barefoot and dressed in only a onesie and a diaper.

As for Ivic, who moved from Serbia to Milwaukee 12 years ago, she said she was just doing what was right.

Transit video showed the boy walking down an overpass. Irena ran to the child, held him and rushed back to her bus.

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass. The boy was chilled after spending time outside in the freezing temperatures.

She alerted the police and as she waited for them to arrive, a passenger removed her jacket and gave it to the child to keep him warm. The girl fell asleep in Ivic's arms.

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.

According to the video shared online, the baby girl is eventually united with her father.

NOTE: Police first said the baby was a boy but later clarified that the child is actually a girl.

Authorities believe the child was left with her mother, who may have been experiencing a mental health issue.
