VIDEO: Eyewitness News obtained exclusive video of a rescue of a 14-year-old girl from a dressing room on Long Island.
Giavanna Diesso, of Smithtown, got stuck in the dressing room at Kate & Hale clothing store on Main Street in Port Jefferson Village on Tuesday afternoon. She was shopping with her mother and friends.
The clothing store is located in an old bank building and the dressing room area is behind a propped steel vault door.
Giavanna's 7-year-old brother closed the door.
"I was pushing and they were pulling and it wasn't opening," Giavanna told Eyewitness News reporter Kristin Thorne in an exclusive interview.
Giavanna's mother, Danielle Diesso, asked store employees if there was any way to open the door. When they quickly realized there wasn't, she called 911.
Within minutes, members of the Port Jefferson Fire Department responded.
