HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A teen has been freed after spending several hours in the vault of an abandoned Florida bank.

Officials say two teens were exploring a vacant Bank of America building in Hollywood when a 17-year-old boy somehow got stuck in the vault. 

The trapped boy's friend eventually called 911.

Hollywood firefighters were able to track down an employee Wednesday afternoon, who had the combination to the vault. 

No charges were immediately reported.
