(Scroll down for video) A 4-year-old girl of Pennsylvania, was seen waiting alone at a bus stop in middle of the night.
The 4-year-old girl was dressed in a purple raincoat and boots as she waited for the bus in the rain to go get herself a cup of slush.
A man who found the girl, flagged down a municipal bus. Surveillance video shows 4-year-old Annabelle, getting onto the bus and taking a seat.
“I was like, you gotta be kidding, not at this time of night,” bus driver Harlan Jenifer, who is a father of 3 children, said.
Annabelle was comforted by passengers while the bus driver called the police. According to the bus driver, when asked where she was going, the girl replied: “all I want is a slushie.”
That is when Annabelle’s mission became clear. She wanted a slush and she was determined to get it.
The girl walked 4 blocks and crossed a road by herself before getting onto the bus, authorities said.
The girl was reunited with her parents within an hour, and they were grateful she was found unharmed.
The parents said that they have no idea how she managed to opened the back door of their home. They were unaware that the child left their home while they were asleep.
Her parents, Timothy and Jaclyn Mager, said that they are still shaken by the incident and they are grateful to the bus driver and all the people who helped get Annabelle home safely.
The couple said that they will now get better locks for their doors so that Annabelle does not get out of the house alone anymore.
