Ivic was presented Thursday with an award by county officials for her act of kindness.

Irena Ivic saw the baby boy walking alone in freezing temperatures next to a busy road around 8 a.m., the Milwaukee County Transit System said.

Another passenger brought her jacket up to the front of the bus to help the boy warm up.

Police told WISN-TV the boy had been left outside by his mother, who they believed may have been suffering from a mental health crisis. The child, who was less than one year old at the time of the incident, was barefoot and wearing only a onesie and diaper, CBS News reported.

A bus driver for the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) was hailed for rescuing a baby girl found wandering the streets alone on the city's south side - and the entire episode was captured on camera. He was later reunited with his father, MCTS said.

Neither the boy's, nor his parents' identities have been released by authorities.

Kevin Hart rules out hosting the Oscars, says he's 'over it'
The Academy has a real mess on its hands with the 2019 Oscars , and they're hoping Earth's mightiest heroes can rescue them. The reason for this was that he said he had already addressed the tweets and apologised for them in the past.

The bus driver was due to be honoured for her heroic actions this week. The little one soon fell asleep in her arms, as seen in the video.

"Oh my god, oh my god", she said.

Ms Ivic said she was grateful she was in the right place at the right time to keep the baby safe.

When asked about what happened Ivic herself, who is originally from Serbia, told reporters, "If I find myself in same situation, I will of course help, always".

This was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years. "I am shaking", Ivic said in the video as she sat down in the driver's seat with the baby.
