Firefighters rescue boy from claw machine

Firefighters rescue boy from claw machine

In the middle of a meal at Beef-o-Brady in Titusville, Florida, Mason wandered off, drawn to the claw machine and its alluring collection of soft toys.

Titusville Fire wrote that after Mason got out - he, his mom and friends went back to eating dinner.

But Mason was having such a good time in there, he started crying when they tried to get him out.

"One thing is for sure: you can never say never when it comes to the insane things kids can do and there's no such thing as a ideal parent", Sutton said.

He even got a stuffed animal, firefighters said. He may have gotten what he wanted, but Titusville Fire and Emergency Services had to be called to extract him from the game.

According to the child's father, the off-duty fireman explained that "90 percent" of his job involved "getting kids out of tight places like this or getting cats out of trees", CBC Radio reported.

Past year a three-year-old got stuck in a toy machine in Sydney's west, at a Rouse Hill business in April.

The fire department shared images on Facebook of the boy trapped inside the machine.

Over in the USA, 18-month-old Colin Lambert climbed into a game in Tennessee while his grandmother wasn't looking in 2014.

Perhaps not surprisingly, this claw machine rescue is not the first of its kind. Both the mother and the bowling alley had called 911.

Several commenters on Facebook commended the firefighters for their quick response and Mason for his abilty to scramble into the machine so quickly.

The restaurant didn't have a key to the machine, as it's handled by a vending contractor.

The claw picks who will go and who will remain.
