A 3-year-old boy feared missing by his mother was found safe and sound inside an arcade claw machine in Nebraska on Tuesday.
Police were called to a home in Lincoln, Neb., on a report of a missing child, according to NBC affiliate WOWT. At the same time, employees at nearby Madsen's Bowling and Billiards found the missing child playing with toys inside their claw machine, where he became stuck after apparently crawling inside.
The boy's mother told police she was in the bathroom and that the boy must have slipped out of an unlocked apartment door. The boy was freed from the claw machine without injury and reunited with his mother.
