RIVERDALE, UT (KSL) A 4-year-old boy was rescued after trapping himself in a gun safe at a sporting goods store in Utah Saturday.
The boy reportedly opened the unlocked gun safe, entered it, and was shut inside for 15 minutes.
Employees called the fire department after several failed attempts to enter the code disabled the ability to continue.
Rescuers were able to obtain a code from the safe’s manufacturer to open it, avoiding cutting or drilling.
“We didn’t cut. We didn’t drill. We didn’t do anything other than keep him calm. I had my EMTs talking to him and assessing him. We were also putting some oxygen into the safe just to make sure and assessing him as well to make sure he was OK. Other than crying and being really scared, he was never really in any danger,” Capt. David Ermer said.
The boy remained calm and safe from any real danger.
