(PHILADELPHIA) — A four-year-old girl in Pennsylvania couldn’t wait to get her hands on her favorite treat – a slushie — so she headed out on her own for an overnight adventure.

The girl, sporting a purple coat and snow boots, ended up alone on a SEPTA bus in Northeast Philadelphia around 3 a.m. on Friday after a man flagged down the bus, according to a report by ABC News station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.

“Got to be kidding me! At this time, at 3 o’clock in the morning,” the bus driver, Harlan Jenifer, told WPVI-TV. “She’s a small little thing. It kind of just shocked me.”

Jenifer told the television station he called police while passengers on board the bus comforted the four-year-old.

“All I want is a slushie, that’s all she said,” Jenifer told WPVI-TV.

The girl was eventually taken home to her parents, who said this was Annabelle’s first and last solo adventure. The family has since reconfigured the locks on the home.

“There are no words, he saved my daughter’s life,” her mother, Jaclyn Mager, told WPVI-TV.
