Milwaukee bus driver Irena Ivic rescued a young child she spotted wandering a freeway overpass

Irena Ivic spotted the child on an overpass around 8 a.m on December 22 a year ago, officials said yesterday during an award ceremony.

Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell.

Ivic brought the freezing infant onto her bus and called for help. She runs up to him, he stretches out his arms and she takes him into hers and darts back to the bus.

A Milwaukee County Transit Service bus driver named Irena Ivic saw the infant walking alone, wearing a red onesie and a diaper in "freezing temperatures" along her route on December 22, according to a news release from the transit authority.

"She did a lot more than her job".

The baby girl was unharmed. I'm shaking, ' she says.

Australia weighs Saudi woman's refugee bid
On Tuesday, the Thai immigration office released a video clip of its officials meeting Saudi diplomats to discuss the case. Ms Mohammed al-Qunun's case echoes that of another Saudi woman who was in transit to Australia in April 2017.

It was 8:00 a.m and the temperature was below freezing.

Authorities say besides being cold and frightened, the toddler was OK.

The parents were eventually reunited with the child and no charges have been filed.

When authorities arrived at the scene, the baby boy was fast asleep in Ivic's arms and the passenger's coat. Kasim told the station he believes his wife, who he said has a mental illness, took the baby to a church across the freeway and later forgot about her. MCTS later learned the baby is less than a year old. Irena said she is just grateful that she was able to help.

It was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years, officials said.
