A young girl who was reportedly left inside a bus in Queensland for six hours has managed to miraculously make it out alive.

Sources revealed how the toddler was inside the bus that happened to be parked outside her daycare center called Le Smileys Early Learning Center.

She was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital but after seeing her condition worsen with time, paramedics thought it was best she be transported by air to the Queensland Children’s hospital located in Brisbane.
Doctors were shocked at her critical condition but thankfully they were able to stabilize her before it was too late. Therefore, she stayed in the hospital under strict observation and is expected to survive, as confirmed by local media reports.
