This is the heroic moment that a Wisconsin bus driver may have saved the life of a six-year-old boy who was roaming in the middle of a cross-section while motorists were just passing by.
A video from Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) shows the spring of Cecilia Nation-Gardner in action when she notices that the little child is running back and forth in traffic after he has escaped from school.
During the May 15 incident, while she was paused at a bus stop on 35th and Vliet Street at around 3 p.m., the driver saw her honking horn while noticing that others are continuing behind the wheel.
Then Nation-Gardner jumps out of her bus and runs into the road herself to prevent something from happening to the young person who is at risk with vehicles coming from at least four lanes.
Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) Cecilia Nation-Gardner was shocked when she saw a child roaming the road around 15:00 on May 15. She honked her horn and shouted & # 39; hey! & # 39;
& # 39; Stay there! Stop it! & # 39; she cries. Some cars stopped, so others stopped.
The mother of three, and grandmother of three, lovingly named Peaches, then took him by the hand and led him safely on her bus.
& # 39; We're going to call the police, OK? So we can take you home, & she told him.
The driver then hears the police calling about the incident and it appears that the child, who has a disability, is at further risk of shooting around the roadways, as an officer sees his lace tied up.
Fortunately, the youngster was safely returned to his family, but Nation Gardner believes that a higher power put her at the right time two weeks ago at that crossroads.
Nation-Gardner was in the right place at the right time because she was a few minutes behind schedule
The six-year-old boy was still in the middle of the road, while the drivers were walking ahead
She hit the road to save him and screamed for him to stop, but he ran away from her
& # 39; Finally I left my switch two minutes later than normal, & # 39; she explained about her slowness. & # 39; That's why I say I was in the right place at the right time. I was supposed to be there. God does everything for a reason. & # 39;
She said in a press conference on Wednesday that the & # 39; scary & # 39; and she didn't even know if she had put the bus in the park when she disembarked.
& # 39; If the car hit that child, it would have been terrible. I could not have taken that, & she continued. & # 39; As an MCTS driver, we tend to see things that are not done by everyone. & # 39;
Nation-Gardner stated that she honked not only to attract the attention of drivers who started moving when the red light changed, but to warn a woman standing at the bus stop because she thought it was the lady's grandchild .
But the woman had no idea what was going on. Nation-Gardener also explained that she had passengers on her bus that were useless.
The bus driver admitted that it was difficult for her to keep up with the boy trying to get away, but even with her weakness she was determined to save him. Other motorists looked at her as a & # 39; woman going down the street so we can go & she said.
She said she had trouble understanding the child when she spoke to him.
The bus driver says she has experience with children while driving a school bus
Nation-Gardner limped as she chased the boy but was determined to keep up with him
Cars & pedestrians continued as normal, while the Wisconsin woman did her best
But she has experience with children because she was driving a school bus.
The MCTS worker – who had two hours left until the end of her service – does not consider herself a hero, she just did her job.
Her colleague & # 39; s called her courageous, but said she just did what she did and & # 39; those are the peaches they know & # 39 ;.
MCTS said it is the 10th lost or missing child that one of their drivers has found in recent years.
The boy is not mentioned.
They told the story as part of their MCTS Excellence program that was launched in 2017 as a & # 39; unique way to recognize employees for their big and small friendly acts & # 39 ;.
The 45th Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes from Wisconsin said about the incident: & # 39; Our transit workers are heroes. & # 39;
The driver finally got the child by the hand and took him to the bus where she explained that she would call the police
When Nation-Gardner called authorities, she explained that the child would be hit by a car & # 39;
Officers arrived and reunited him with his family. One officer regarded the boys' lace as the other assisted by Nation-Gardner
