Teen gets stuck in bank vault

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS -

Of­fi­cials say a teen has been freed af­ter spend­ing more than three hours in the vault of an aban­doned Florida bank. News out­lets re­port that Hol­ly­wood fire­fight­ers tried to drill through a wall to break into the vault last Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon af­ter the 17-year-old’s friend called 911.

But they were stymied un­til a worker at the bank’s new branch across the street heard of the predica­ment. That worker re­mem­bered the code and was able to open the vault’s mas­sive door.

Of­fi­cials say the two teens were ex­plor­ing the va­cant Bank of Amer­ica build­ing when one of them got stuck. Luck­ily, the other was on the out­side and able to call for help.

The teens’ par­ents were called and author­i­ties re­leased the boys to them. No charges were im­me­di­ately re­ported.
