In Georgia, a 14-month-old toddler wandered away from her mother inside a bank. Crazy, I know. What’s even crazier is that the baby managed to walk inside an open bank vault that locked as the bank closed (and wouldn’t open again until the bank opened). After cameras spotted the baby on security cameras inside the vault, the mother realised that her kid was trapped inside.

In what police officers said was a “very tense scene”, the baby actually spent 4 hours trapped inside by herself. Authorities pumped fresh air through vents while she was crying and policemen and firefighters tried to free her. But they couldn’t! Not until a locksmith used a drill to break open the vault was she saved. She’s okay now, a fresh nappy was all she needed. [MSNBC via BoingBoing]
