MANISTEE -- A 10-year-old girl spent nearly 40 minutes in a locked gun safe before police helped crack the combination lock.
The girl was trapped in a 2 feet by 3 feet safe when officers arrived on the scene in Brethren Friday afternoon.
They unsuccessfully attempted to open the 50-year-old Meilink gun safe, but were able to drill an air hole for the girl.
A state trooper later reached a Mount Pleasant locksmith, who provided the combination. The girl was examined by paramedics before she was released to the care of her mother.
