A bus driver in Milwaukee is being hailed as a hero after he stopped to help a young boy who wandered away from home.
According to ABC News, Duane Butler was driving along his usual route when he noticed a 2-year-old boy standing outside by himself around 6:30 a.m. Butler immediately stopped and asked the child to please come on the bus. The child proceeded to tell Butler that he was lost and a passenger even comforted him while they waited for police to arrive.
Once an officer arrived, he took the child door-to-door to find his home. It turns out, the boy had slipped out of his house while everyone else was asleep and the child was eventually reunited with his mother, who was grateful for the bus driver’s quick-thinking.
Butler likely saved this child’s life because who knows what could have happened to him if he was left out any longer alone on the streets.
This reminds us of a story last year where a bus driver, also from Milwaukee, spotted a 5-year-old shoeless boy running down the street at midnight. The boy ran right towards Denise Wilson’s bus, and she brought him into her arms and immediately called the police.
In both of these instances, these drivers were in the right place at the right time to help out children in need.
