Philadelphia, US: A four-year-old girl was found in the middle of the city on her own at 3am after travelling by bus to get a slushie, according to abc Action News.
The streets of Philadelphia... for a slushie
The shocked bus driver had been flagged down after a passer-by had found the little girl. He called the police who chatted to bus passengers attempting to calm the child. All she could say was that she’d wanted a slushie. Fortunately, police were able to locate her parents and, within an hour, had reunites the little girl with them. They have since changed their locks at home.
"So does that mean I can't have a slushie?"
Even while the girl’s mom was being interviewed by local news she was still asking for the frozen snack, but her mom told her in no uncertain terms to wait until they could go together.
