What A Bore!

‘RESCUERS had to break into a bank to free a toddler who got locked inside the vault of the Washington Mutual Bank in Redwood, California, and would have been stuck there until morning.

No-one realised that Daniella Sanchez, aged two, was inside the vault until after they closed the heavy steel and concrete door 6.30pm that evening.

Because of a time lock, the doors could not be opened again until 6am – so firefighters were called.

Fire Chief Paul Wilson said they drilled a two-inch hole and pushed through a surveillance camera and drinking water, along with a microphone to let the girl’s mother talk to her daughter.

A private concrete boring firm was then brought in and they drilled a hole big enough for the child to crawl out through.’
