Oslo, Norway - A 10-year-old Norwegian boy took his toddler sister for a joy ride in the family car, ending up in a snowy ditch posing as a dwarf.

Police said on Wednesday the children had travelled around 10 kilometres towards their grandmother's house when a snowplough driver saw the automatic car stuck in a ditch on a quiet country road in southeast Norway.

A local police officer in the southern region of Vestoppland, Kai Lyshaugen, said: “This seems to have happened on an impulse. He woke up at night, his sister was also awake and he decided to take her for a ride.”

According to the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, the boy told the snowplough driver they were on their way to their grandmother's house about 30 kilometres away.

‘I’M NOT A KID, I’M A DWARF!’

He later told another snowplough operator that he was a dwarf and had wound up in the ditch when making a hasty U-turn to go home for his driving licence.

The young boy and his 18-month-old sister, who was sitting on the passenger seat without a seat belt, were unharmed and cheerful when they were found.

“He asked for help to tow his vehicle so they could continue their journey,” Lyshaugen said.

Police returned the children safely to their parents.
