Vigilant bus driver helps return lost children home

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTMJ) — A Wisconsin bus driver is being praised for her quick thinking that helped two lost children return to their family.

The Milwaukee County Transit System says Jeannie Mitchell was driving her usual route last month when she noticed two young children walking alone.

Mitchell immediately stopped her bus, and can be heard asking the children “Sweetie, where y’all going? Who are you with?” in security video provided by MCTS. After discovering the kids didn’t know where they were going, she called police to the scene, who were eventually able to reunite the children with their mother.

“I knew something was wrong, they pointed in every direction, that was a cue that they were lost,” Mitchell said. “Once the police showed up and did their part I felt a lot better, felt a whole lot better.”
