We”ve all seen this somewhat of an urban legend in movies, TV shows or cartoon. A child climbs inside one of those claw crane machines in an arcade to get a toy from inside and gets stuck. Well it might not be such an urban legend after all, since that”s exactly what happened recently in Lincoln, Nebraska.
According to KETV 7, this little boy is safe after climbing into and getting stuck inside a claw crane machine at a bowling alley in Lincoln, NE. Lincoln police said it started when the boy”s mother discovered he was missing from their apartment and after a frantic search notified police.
After receiving the call Lincoln police immediately began searching for the missing child when Madsen Bowling and Billiards, which is across the street from the boys home, discovered him inside the arcade machine.
Soon after, the mother was reunited with the child, who is doing just fine and was not distressed by the whole ordeal. The vendor even gave the boy a stuffed animal from the machine.
