And the kid stuck in a crane machine today comes from…

While we don’t see these stories of toddlers getting stuck in toy crane machines terribly often, they do seem to show up with some moderate frequency and today the story comes to us from New Zealand. Fortunately for this kid’s mother, the guy with the key to the machine wasn’t too far away so they did not have to wait very long to get the child out although it sounds like he was quite happy to be in there (at least he doesn’t have claustrophobia, right?).

check out the full article below. Tiny pic of the event above taken from the same source.

    Every time.

    Every time I see one of there stories I ask myself, how does the kid get in there in the first place? Though the prize chute?! XD

    Hah quality. Looks quite a big kid to have crawled up the prize chute. Would have been more funny if it was closing time, or the company who supply the machine were on holiday :o)

    There is a YouTube video that AH ran that showed a kid crawling into the chute, another showed the kid crawl in through a gap at the back of the machine.

    These stories are starting to sound the same. I would suggest that there has been an issue of this happening for some time, but as the machines change getting the brat out is getting more complicated.

    Also there is an issue of parents trying to sue facilities to take the blame off of their parenting skills or the fact that their child is involved in larceny!
