Milwaukee Bus Driver Finds 5-Year-Old Boy Walking Barefoot, Helps Him Find Family

A Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver came to the aid of a five-year-old boy she found walking the streets with no shoes or socks, helping reunite him with his family.

Karen Martinez was driving the 80 bus route when she encountered the “shivering” boy on a cold October morning walking barefoot.

Martinez carried the boy to the bus and gave him another passenger’s coat to warm him up. She kept him occupied by giving him a tour of the bus and getting him to draw a picture while they waited for police to arrive.
