A 4-year-old Philadelphia girl is safely back home after giving her parents a scare, along with a crazy story to tell their friends.
In desperate need of a slushie, the girl quietly slipped out of bed and left the house in the pouring rain at 3am. She then got on a bus by herself to get that slushie. The Associated Press reports that bus driver Harlan Jenifer stopped the bus and called police when he realized the girl was unaccompanied by an adult.
Amazingly, the entire incident was caught on security camera footage. Jenifer said the girl just swung her legs as she sat in her seat and said, “All I want is a slushie.”

Police arrived and took the girl to a nearby hospital, where she was soon reunited with her parents.
The girl’s mom said of the bus driver, “I just want to hug him, I really do. I can’t thank him enough. He saved my daughter’s life.”
After their reunion, the girl asked her mom, “Mama, can you take me to Wawa and buy a slushie?”
Her mom laughed and responded,
One thing’s for sure: This girl definitely has initiative. Maybe she’ll end up owning a slushie empire someday. Or maybe she’s part of the food illuminati and is being paid under the table by Wawa’s marketing and PR team? We’re investigating, and will update you if any illuminati affiliations surface.
