An 11-year-old American girl was left behind in a bus for more than three hours on Tuesday, after the bus driver dropped her family off at their hotel. The girl had fallen asleep in the last row of the bus and did not get off with her family, and the bus driver apparently did not do a scan of the bus.

When the girl woke up and realized she had been forgotten, she tried to get out of the bus but was locked inside. She attracted the attention of some children playing outside, who called for help.

Firefighters who responded to the scene hotwired the electric system of the bus and opened the door. She was reunited with her parents late on Tuesday night. Authorities opened an investigation into the matter.
