A MITS bus driver, Nikki Knight, noticed a toddler wearing only a diaper as she made a stop on her regular route last week. Knight parked her bus and got out to check on the child. No guardians came out to see what was happening so the police were called and eventually the mother arrived at the scene.

Fox 59 produced this video about the story.
