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.

    First I am glad that the baby is safe. This baby needs to see the baby that does the commericals for the stock company.

    If I was the toddler I would have been stuffing money in my diaper for milk later.

    toddlers are quick to move around away from you, thats why you have to hold their hands or hold them in your arms, even better put them in a stroller so they cannot get away from you. they move sooo fast!
