A Wisconsin bus driver is being hailed as a hero after she didn't hesitate to stop and run to the rescue of a barefoot baby walking alone on a freeway overpass.

The Milwaukee County Transit System says the girl was less than a year old and wearing only a diaper and a onesie when bus driver Irena Ivic spotted him on December 22.

From a distance on her regular morning route on Milwaukee's south side, just after 8 a.m., she saw him: a baby boy alone running along a freeway overpass sidewalk. He was wearing just a onesie and a diaper.

Ivic pulled her bus over, crossed the busy street, picked the infant up, and called for help.

ABC7 reported the boy was later reunited with his father.

She suddenly stopped the bus and dodged traffic to rescue the baby.
