Niagara Falls, ONT - Investigators from the Niagara Regional Police Service are seeking to question a family from Brooklyn, New York following reports that workers from the hotel they were staying at in the area were called to extract an infant from a safe located inside their room.

CBC.ca (http://bit.ly/1NuABrI) reports that, according to police, a distress call from the parents to hotel management went out Tuesday evening at about 10 p.m. stating that their baby—-who investigators believe to be less than a year old—-was locked inside a safe inside their room.

Hotel workers said the parents were present when a staff member was successful in extracting the crying infant from the safe measuring approximately 50 centimeters wide by 35 centimeters tall by 43 centimeters deep.

But by the time police were notified, the parents and baby had left the hotel.

Detectives from the Niagara child abuse unit are actively seeking to question the parents and have alerted U.S. border services to be on the lookout for their rented 2015 grey Ford van bearing the NJ license plate B31EUB.

I don't think an infant less than a year old crawled into the safe by itself.

Ummm. Where to you get that "kids were playing" with it?
I see no mention of other kids, only parents and the infant.
It seems they suspect the parents of putting the infant in.

Also, the doors on safes in hotels generally don't lock on their own. Let's assume (even though the article or accompanying CBC article and footage don't make clear either way), that because they had a rented minivan that there were other children there. Perhaps one of them was responsible for getting the baby into the safe and/or closing it and/or locking it.

The young couple just thought it was a safe place to leave the baby. After all it did say "safe".

There are YouTube videos on how to easily hack into all of the hotel safes.

Police should investigate this absolutely. Have you ever been in a hotel, you child abuse defednders? They only lock by instruction. This couple wanted privacy or was.playong an awful game. No mention of more kids who might have done this. If older kids did it, still needs investigaring. Kids learn from parents. A one yr old cannot crawl into a safe and lock it.

Y are many jumping in to blame the parent? As #1 says, the safe is on the floor unlocked. And to #3 an infant of one year Can crawl. And that is what they do. And as #10 says, the safe don't lock by itself is true. But maybe the mother was so lost or, and confused that she started turning or pressing the buttons that triggered the baby to be really locked in.

Blonde, the article says Brooklyn. What I do know is that Lakewood is NOT in Brooklyn. Hope it's clear for you now.

According to many reports it's a Asian couple.

Very crazy guess and certainly not a "voice of reason."

Hotel safes are not on the floor, they're usually in a closer, higher than a young toddler could ever reach on their own,
