An unlikely hero has rescued a barefoot baby walking alone on a footpath in the freezing cold.
Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver Irena Ivic was shocked by what she witnessed around 8 a.m. on December 22nd.

She then rushes back to the vehicle, where some passengers look on.
A Facebook post by Milwaukee County Transit System said the temperature was below freezing and all the child was wearing was a nappy and a onesie. Transit video shows the boy toddling down the overpass.
Authorities eventually reunited the baby girl with her father.
Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell.
Police said the girl had been left outside by her mother, who is thought to be suffering from a mental health crisis.
Neither the boy's, nor his parents' identities have been released by authorities.
It was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years, officials said.
The bus driver was due to be honoured for her heroic actions this week. "I find a child and upset and if I have the same situation again, I will of course again help", said Ivic. The little one soon fell asleep in her arms, as seen in the video.
"Irena Ivic did a lot more than her job, she did the right thing. I am shaking", Ivic said in the video as she sat down in the driver's seat with the baby.
