Lincoln Nebraska – No one is quite sure how it happened, but a 3-year-old found himself inside a claw vending machine, surrounded by stuffed animals.

KETV reported that the boy's panicked mother called police at 5:30 p.m. when she was unable to find him. The family lived in an apartment across the street from a bowling alley.

Patrons in the bowling alley noticed the boy inside the claw vending machine, flinging around stuffed animals. Authorities suspect that the child, who was not hurt, crawled in through a prize door.

Hey," No News in Natick" ( D Penta} Good idea, don't click if it's not local news. They are almost out of business now, let's put them over the top. What little local news you get now on Patch, will be non-existent.

Just another copy cat. They crawl in thu the exit where the toy is dropped into when you "win". Where were the oh so stupid parents while this was going on?

This happened years ago in Little Falls, NJ when a child walked out of his house and into the traffice on Route 23 and was killed.....what is wrong with parents? You go to the bathroom you take the child with you!!!!!! Lucky his Gardian Angel was watching over him!

Unless Nebraska is now part of Wayne, why is this story of parental stupidity even here.
