Irena Ivic, born in Prokuplje, in Serbia, saved a one-year-old child in Milwaukee who was walking barefoot, on cold weather, on the streets, wearing just a bodysuit and a diaper.
Near the end of December, as soon as she noticed a little girl crying on the sidewalk, she stopped the bus and she ran towards her, reported by the local media.
– Oh my dear God, I am shivering – answered Irena when she entered the bus.
The passengers approached to help to keep the girl warm until the help arrives. While the police and firefighters arrived, the child fell asleep in her arms.
The police later stated that her mother left her outside, and then they took her to the father.
– O my god, I was very disturbed. The baby was crying and she was scared. I can’t believe that someone would leave a child on the street – said Ivic.
WOW: "The child, who was less than one-year-old, was barefoot and wearing just a onesie and diaper." Thank you Milwaukee County Transit System drivers for sharing this video and for going above and beyond to save this child!

Her employer and a colleague from Milwaukee were amazed at this gesture and said that Ivic showed humanity in the best way possible.
Irena talked to the press and said that she would do the same thing over again if she ever found herself in the same position.

She came to Milwaukee 12 years ago, and she has been working as a bus driver for 5 years.
CCN already reported about Irena, and as they stated, this is the ninth time in the last few years that a public driver in the area of Milwaukee found a missing child.
– I absolutely love children. I used to be a teacher and I have children on my own, so I am happy that I could help this sweet, innocent baby – said Ilic.
