A US bus driver is being hailed a hero after she rescued a child wandering around in the middle of the night.
Denise Wilson, a driver with the Milwaukee County Transit System said she was taking a break when she noticed the five-year-old boy walking with no shoes on.
"It's after midnight, so I'm just like, am I really seeing what I'm seeing?" she told ABC affiliate WISN-TV. "He came out of nowhere, out of nowhere. I just happened to look over and heard him crying."
Waiting for police to arrive, Wilson gave the freezing boy her jacket and some food.
It was later reported that the boy was reunited with his family after leaving the house “by mistake”.
"I'm happy I made that stop. You know, I always say God puts us in places, you know, where he needs us at times," she said. "I don't look at it as being a hero — just being there to help."
