Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) driver Irena Ivic spotted the boy, wearing only a red onesie and no shoes, running down the sidewalk at 8 a.m. on December 22, 2018.
Ivic pulled her bus over, crossed the busy street, picked the infant up, and called for help.

"Oh my God, I was so upset", she told KTLA sister station WITI in Milwaukee.
Ivic, who will be honored Thursday by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, spotted a boy alone on a freeway overpass near 4th and Mitchell.
Firefighters, police officers and transit security officers arrived at the scene soon thereafter.

Ivic said she was grateful she could keep the boy safe, MCTS said in a video about the incident. He was later reunited with his father, MCTS said.
Police say the child had been left outside by his mother who may have been suffering from a mental health crisis.
