Milwaukee County Transit System bus operator Karen Martinez-Casper was driving her usual route on an early October morning when she noticed something disturbing.

Martinez-Casper spotted the lost boy while driving her route last October.

As she took a turn, her headlights caught the outline of a 5-year-old boy standing alone on the side of the road, shivering in the cold.

The grandmother of two took action immediately.

What happened next, as she explained in our interview, will warm your heart.
