A Nine-year-old boy became trapped in a safe during a game of hide and seek at his grandfathers home in Berlin.

He had to be rescued by firefighters after he hid inside the sade. He was playing with his little brother at home in Lichterfelde, Berlin.

Believing he has found the perfect hiding place the boy went inside the unused safe and closed the door locking himself in.

The boy was playing with his little brother at the home in Lichterfelde, Berlin, when he found the ultimate hiding place.

His hiding place was eventually found but his grandfather was the only person who knew the code for the safe and he was away.

They could not get in contact with him and called for help from the local fire brigade.

They tested family birthdays for three hours in the hope they’d crack the code while pumping oxygen into the safe via a tiny crack.

As a specialist team arrived who was able to cut the safe open they managed to enter a successful six-digit code.

Firefighters say the child remained calm throughout the ordeal and was shocked but unharmed.

Berlin firefighter Thomas Kirstein said it was a happy ending and super early Christmas present.

Hopefully, he won’t be hiding in there again and in future, they’ll be keeping the door shut because this incident could have been very different.
