Bus Driver Rescues Freezing Children Lost In The Snow


(crowd cheering) – Here on the show we
love shining the light on extraordinary people. And this ones sure to
give you all the feels. Recently a bus driver from
Wisconsin saw a two year old and a six year old
walking alone in the snow in 18 degree temps, barely
dressed for the weather. So look what she did. (air whooshing) – Whoa! Those little kids are out
here without any clothes on! Come on, come on. It’s nice and warm in here. Okay? (child whining) I know just have a seat, I’m
gonna call somebody. Okay? It’s okay honey. We’re gonna figure it out. It’s gonna be okay, I promise. We’re gonna find your family. You looking for your grandma? – [Boy Child] Yeah. – Okay we’ll find her. (crowd applauding) (crowd cheering) – Well thank goodness she was right there. I mean that’s why today
you are our rad human. That is incredible. Give it up for Nicole. – Thank you (crowd cheering) Thank you – I mean, it’s… I can’t even imagine
driving along the road and then seeing like, a little
two year old in a diaper with a backpack in the snow. What were your first thoughts? – I knew the weather was so
cold and I thought to myself, why are somebody’s little babies outside in this weather alone? I could not imagine it and
I have two adopted children of my own and I can’t imagine something like that happening to my kids. – Yeah, that’s crazy. So talk us through what happened. – So I’m driving dow the
road in a special needs bus and I look over to my right and I see the two little
kids walking down the street and they’re headed towards
a really busy intersection. And there’s no school bus stop down there. So a lot of things ran
through my head at once trying to figure out
why they would be headed that way and there were no reasons. – [Kelly] Yeah. So I pull over right away, got out of my bus, called
them over and said you know, come here, let’s get on the warm bus and figure out what is going on. – I mean it’s incredible that you got them and somebody that maybe
isn’t a kind person didn’t snatch them. There’s two little helpless kids, like on the side of the road, like that’s incredible thing
and scary, like as a mom. – For sure. – Like whoa – Absolutely. – How were the kids once
they got on the bus? Were they scared? – Well they were very confused. They were very scared because
I think what happened was they got outside and got turned around and didn’t know how to
get back to their house because of the snow. So when they got on my bus they were cold. They were nervous. They were scared. – The snow does that man. We have a place in Montana
and once it covers things you’re like, where am I? And I’m 37. It does that. It does freak you out. They must have been so scared though. – Yeah. – He seemed like he was
being a good big brother. – He was a very good big brother. He was taking very good care of her. – Yeah, because she seemed a little scared and he seemed like he
was kind holding it down. – He had it all under control. He knew their names. You know, he had it all under control. – So you reunited them with
their grandmother right? – [Nicole] I did. – And that’s who they live with right? – Yes. – Oh my gosh. I bet she was so happy. (crowd cheering) – She was very relieved, yeah. Thank you. – Well we have a little surprise for you because there’s someone
who wants to recognize Nicole’s heroic actions and
hopefully we all do stuff like that when you see someone in need please don’t just keep driving, for the sake of that parent. The Mayor of Waukesha, Shawn Riley, prepared a proclamation to honor Nicole on behalf of the entire city. The mayor here you go… Thanks Ran. Give it up for Ran. (crowd cheering) The mayor wants to publicly
express his gratitude for Nicole’s service to children in need and for her continued service
and work in the community. Because what you already do is amazing. And here’s the certificate
they gave that to us – [Nicole] Wow. – To give to you. – Thank you so much. – Because they were so proud of you. (crowd cheering) – That’s amazing. – And literally I love that your city recognized someone that.. It was such a small thing
you probably think you did, but god that’s monumental for people that those children belong to, you know? – Yeah. – It’s crazy scary time out there and there’s not enough love going around. So please keep your eyes
open and be helpful.
