Footage captured the moment a Long Island teenager stuck inside a bank vault-turned-dressing room was rescued by fire fighters after her younger brother closed the door and accidentally locked her inside for hours. 

Giavanna Diesso, 14, was trying on clothes at Kate and Hale in Port Jefferson on Tuesday when she was accidentally locked in a dressing room area that once served as a bank vault for the First National Bank of Port Jefferson. 

Her seven-year-old brother Vincent shut the door of the bank vault, trapping his older sister. 

‘I didn’t think that it was actually going to close,’ he told Newsday.

Her mother, Danielle Diesso, was at the register at the time and heard the sound of the heavy door closing.   

‘It just, like, slammed and clicked so I was, like, just what happened?’ Giavanna told Newsday.

The 14-year-old was trapped in the vault for nearly two hours and kept herself busy by talking to friends, CBS 2 reported. 

‘I was a little nervous that something was gonna go wrong, but then like, I also couldn’t really tell what was going on on the outside,’ Giavanna said. ‘I was kind of just waiting for the drill to pop through the wall.’

‘She didn’t show an ounce of fear at all, which I’m amazed by,’ her mom proudly told CBS 2.

Giavanna was rescued by a crew from the Port Jefferson Fire Department, who used air chisels and hammer drills to breach the foot-thick wall. 

Once the hole was large enough fire fighters pulled the Giavanna out.  

The fire department posted a clip of her rescue on Facebook that shows two fire fighters carrying the girl out of a hole as she lays on her stomach and cheering her on after she is pulled out.    

The fire department plans on using the video of the incident for future training, CBS 2 reported. 

The 14-year-old suffered no injuries and even posed for a picture with firefighters after she was rescued. 

There’s now a sign just outside the door that says ‘Do Not Touch,’ according to Newsday.
