The child, who was less than 1-year-old, was barefoot and wearing a onesie and diaper, according to MCTS.
Ivic stopped her bus, darted across the street, picked up the crying child and carried him onto her bus, where passengers could be heard saying, "Oh my God!"
Milwaukee County bus driver Irena Ivic told WLS that she spotted the little girl, who is less than 1-year-old, running along the side of the overpass in only a onesie and a diaper just before 8 a.m. on December 22.

The child is seen peacefully sleeping in the bus driver's arms, as members of the local police arrive and collect her.
A passenger on the bus took off her winter coat and draped it around the little girl, who was cold to the touch. "Authorities eventually reunited the baby with its father", Sliker said.
This is the ninth lost or missing child who has been found by MCTS drivers in recent years. Police said the baby's mother had left her outside while suffering from a mental health issue. Irena was awarded by MCTS for her selfless work.
The Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver said she couldn't believe her eyes.
