According to the parents, the six month old baby girl had been accidentally locked in the safe by an older sibling during a game of ‘hide and seek’ gone wrong.

The baby spent more than half an hour in the tiny, cramped safe but thankfully was left uninjured.

Police in Niagara, a town on the border between the US and Canada, claim that the child’s parents have been ‘very co-operative’ with their investigation.

Sgt, Chris Stewart told local news: “The family was unaware of all the attention they had received and were very cooperative with investigators from the Child Abuse Unit.”
