Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver's heroic actions caught on surveillance cameras after she spotted a baby wandering alone around busy streets and stopped to rescue the child.

In video released by the MCTS, you can see Ivic driving down the street when she spots the small girl, who was less than a year old and dressed only in a onesie. A passenger on Ivic's bus gave up her coat to keep the infant warm while they waited for firefighters, police and transit security officers to arrive, WISN-TV reports. He said he believes his wife, who he said has a mental illness, took the baby to the church just across the freeway and forgot about her.

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

The MCTS said in a statement that the baby was unharmed.

The bus driver was honoured at a commendation ceremony on Thursday. The temperatures were freezing that day, on December 22, according to the transit system.
