NY Teens get trapped inside vault
Falconer, N.Y. -- Authorities say four teenagers were apparently partying in a former law office in western New York when they got trapped for several hours in a walk-in vault inside the building.
Police say they received a call around 1 a.m. Friday from a person reporting that four people ages 18 and 19 were struck inside the vault in a building in the Chautauqua County village of Falconer, 60 miles south of Buffalo.
Rescue crews responded to the scene along with a locksmith, who freed the teens after about four hours. Police say all four were checked out at a local hospital.
Officials say the teens had permission to be inside the building. Authorities say they found a large quantity of alcohol and some marijuana on the premises, and charges are pending against the teens.
