Irena Ivic has seen a lot during her career as a Milwaukee County Transit System driver, but she was shocked by what she witnessed about 8 a.m. December 22.

MCTS officials said just before 8 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22 a bus driver, Irena Ivic, spotted something shocking in front of her bus - a toddler wandering alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell in Milwaukee. The baby's mother had left it alone outside after suffering a reported mental health episode.

The parents were eventually reunited with the child and no charges have been filed. Abele called her actions "humanity at its best". He was wearing just a onesie and a diaper.

The video also shows Ivic, driving her bus as normal, then suddenly stopping it, as she spots the child wandering close to the road.
