Conyers, GA (AP) - A toddler spent two hours trapped in a bank vault in suburban Atlanta.

Conyers firefighters rescued the 14-month-old from the vault Friday night after the child went missing while visiting a grandparent who worked at the Wells Fargo bank in Conyers. The child was found after being spotted on security cameras inside the vault, which has a timed lock.

Rescue workers arrived and pumped fresh air into the vault while a locksmith worked on prying loose the door. Authorities said the baby could be heard crying during the rescue.

Authorities did not release the child's name.
