Wandering toddler climbs into claw machine


Published in Weird News

(UPI) An Australian woman whose toddler son vanished at an arcade quickly located the wandering boy -- inside the claw machine.

A video captured by the surprised woman at a Marion, South Australia, business shows the young boy happily looking out from behind the glass of the prize area of the claw machine.

"I had a go on the claw machine, and didn't win anything. I then stepped back from the machine to talk to a couple gentlemen, and my son disappeared from my feet! He had been playing with the joystick on the machine, I heard the prize door bang, and after a moment of confusion and panic, I saw his head pop up in the prize slot of the machine," the mother wrote.

She said her son was not inside the machine for very long.

"One of the men I was with had to go and find someone from the local arcade center to bring the keys so we could get him out. He was in there for about 5 minutes, and was happily playing and chatting to us through the glass the whole time," she wrote.
