A driver for the Milwaukee County Transit System is being honored for rescuing a barefoot baby girl who was spotted wandering alone on an overpass last month. 

Driver Irina Ivic pulled over, ran across the busy street, quickly grabbed the child and took her back to the warm bus.  A rider gave up her coat to warm the child who was wearing only a onesie (WON zee). The girl had apparently been left outside by her mother who may have been suffering through a mental health issue.
