A four-year-old girl left her home in the middle of the night just to get a slushie.

CCTV footage showed Annabel Ridgeway getting on the bus in Philadelphia at three in the morning.

She told passengers she got dressed, unlocked the front door and walked out because she wanted a slushie from a nearby shop.

According to Sky News, bus driver Harlan Jenifer said: “She knew exactly where she was going. So she must’ve travelled that route before. She had to.”

Harlan, who has children of his own, said he did what “any father would do” and immediately stopped the bus and called police.

Annabel was soon reunited with her parents but told her mum she still wanted a slushie.

Police have no plans to file charges against the parents.
