According to the Daily Mail:
The boy – who lives near Dokka, a town 110kms (68 miles) north of Oslo – put his 18-month old sister into the car sometime before 6am, while his parents were still sleeping and set off to visit his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometers away.
“The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,” said Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police district.
When authorities finally found him (with the help of a snowplow who saw the boy in the ditch) he offered up that ridiculous explanation:
“The boy told the snowplow driver that he was a dwarf and that he had forgotten his driver’s license at home.”
Which is both clever and alarming for a 10-year-old to conjure up.
Thankfully, the kids and the car were uninjured. We do not, however, have details on what happened when his parents got ahold of him. But we’re guessing nothing good.
