You Won’t Believe Why This Philadelphia 4-Year-Old Rode The Bus Alone At 3 A.M.
Sometimes you just really need a slushie.
A 4-year-old Philadelphia girl grabbed her raincoat, slipped out of her house at 3 a.m. and hopped a municipal bus in search of a refreshing slushie drink, according to reports.
Surveillance video from the bus shows the little girl, Annabelle, getting onto the bus and taking a seat.
When she boarded the bus alone, the bus driver knew something was amiss, so he called police who came and collected her.
“I was like, whoa, you’ve got to be kidding me,” bus driver Harlan Jenifer said. “Not at this time of the night, three in the morning, a little girl? She’s a small thing. Kind of just shocked me.”
Jenifer explained that Annabelle kept saying, “All I want is a slushie.”
Within an hour, Annabelle was reunited with her shocked but thankful parents.
Authorities say that her family didn’t know that she had awoken and unlocked the backdoor to start her trek during a downpour early Friday.
Authorities found nothing amiss at the family’s house and have no plans to file any charges.
