Eloping Kids' Plan of an African Wedding Foiled by the Police!

Mika and Anna-Lena wanted to elope to Africa to get married where it's warm, but the couple's plan was foiled by police. It's a good thing, too, since the two lovebirds are only five and six years old!

The budding lovebirds, identified as Mika and Anna-Lena, packed bathing costumes, sunglasses and a lilo and headed for the airport. They even had the presence of mind to invite along an official witness - Anna-Lena's seven-year-old sister. [...]

The following morning, as their parents slept, the intrepid trio walked 1km (0.6 miles) to the local tram station at Langenhagen, where they hopped aboard a tram for Hanover central station.

But the group aroused the suspicion of a guard as they waited for a train to the airport, and police were called in.

Officers persuaded the children they would not get far without tickets and money, but consoled them with a free tour of the police station, where they were shortly picked up by relieved parents.

Well, I agree with Anke... The 5 year old sister was the witness, while the elder girl is the bride-to-be...

I just hope this is one romance that will stand the test of time, and that these children actually do marry when they are old enuff to understand the implications of being married...

On another note... I wish I was in their place :D

A nice story. Made me smile and remeber my old adventures.

But the cynic in me says somehow, somewhere, someone will charge the parents with child neglect or child endangerment. Where were the parents? Weren't they watching these kids? blah, blah, blah.
