A Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver is being hailed a hero for the actions she took to help two Milwaukee children out of a scary situation. Driver Jeannie Mitchell was driving her usual route on Wednesday, October 12th when she noticed two young kids walking alone down the sidewalk. Mitchell stopped the bus, opened the door and asked the children if they were lost.
“I stopped and said, you know, ‘These children are by themselves.’ So I decided to pull over and ask the kids where they were going and who were they with,” Mitchell said. The camera on board the bus captured the heartwarming act of kindness as it happened.
Mitchell got off the bus, asked the children more questions and realized the pair did not know where they were going and were lost. She then contacted police to help the little ones find their family.
A Milwaukee police officer helped the one-year-old boy and five-year-old girl contact their mom. The children say they walked away from their babysitter and were trying to go to a relative’s house but got lost.
“If the parent hadn’t showed up, I would still be thinking ‘What happened to those children?’ But once the police showed up and did their part, I felt a lot better,” Mitchell said.
