On a snowy day, a Wisconsin bus driver spotted 2 young kids wandering in the freezing snow. the kids were not appropriately dressed for the below-freezing temperatures.
The bus driver, Nicole Chamberlain has been driving for Waukesha Metro Transit for nearly a year, but she had never came across anything like what she saw Monday morning.
A brutal cold snap hit most of the united states earlier this week. According to Fox News, nearly 70 percent of the country experienced below-freezing temperatures.
In Waukesha, near Milwaukee, temperatures dropped to 3 degrees above zero with the wind chill, according to WITI-TV.
Chamberlain was very surprised when she saw a little boy wearing only a T-shirt and pants and a little girl wearing a T-shirt and a diaper, she knew she needed to intervene.
“It was snowing, and it was windy, and these were tiny little kids,” she later said. “They were 2 and 6.”
“No one had a coat on,” the bus driver said. “The little girl had on a T-shirt and diaper. The little boy had on a T-shirt and pants.”
Concerned for their well-being, Chamberlain pulled over and quickly rushed the children onto her bus.
The surveillance video showed the bus driver comforting the children not only with her words and the heater on the bus, but also with her own coat.
Chamberlain called the police, but while officers were there trying to figure out where the children lived, their family arrived.
According to WDJT-TV, the children’s grandmother told police the kids wandered off from their home a few blocks away.
