Toddler rescued from toy vending machine

Is it just me or does something seem fishy here? I can not believe a little kid could crawl inside one of those machines. think the mom wanted some attention and knew someone who worked at that store.

I remember seeing a sotry like this before with an 8 year old. He had to be rescued very quickly because he had to go to the bathroom. it all sounds weird to me, and I have no idea how to get in.

They should have left him in there for a night for him trying to steal toys out of there. :-D

Hey if those grown people can put themselves in a box, then I'm sure some little kid could crawl into a vending machine

The mother should be charged with something for this. Negligence, or something along those lines. She allowed him to do it because the toy didn't come out. I mean, it was a claw machine, she probably didn't do it right! Who lets their kid crawl into machinery anyway?

Add this lady to the "I'm an idiot and should never have had a child" list.

Let me get this straight. She tried to win the kid a toy, which means they were both standing right there, and when she didn't win the kid crawled in. How on Earth, did you manage to not see your kid climbing into the machine!? I know kids are slick and they can do some things you never thought possible, but i don't see how you took your eyes of the kid in a Wal-Mart long enough for him to climb into a machine.

They should have used the claw to drop the kid into the chute ;-D

But seriously, they don't show the chute exit where he would have crawled in. Some of these macines have pretty big exits where a kid conceivably could get in pretty easily - check out this picture (it's a Clean Sweep model fairly similar to the one the kid was in). What I don't get is that usually there is a little stop on the exit door so people can't reach up in the machine.

Nobody is sueing the mother? :-°

im with those of you who ragged on the mother. that was the first thing that came to my mind..."why did the mom sit there and let her kid even attempt to crawl up there!??!" boy...she must feel proud. :-t

The government needs to make some people sterile. This moron takes her kid to the store at 3 am and lets him go inside the machine. If her mom wanted to get her a toy, why not buy one. It said in the article that his mom played the game to try to get him one of those peice of crap toys that are imposible to get out anyway. She was in Wal Mart! If she had half a brain, she could just go down the toy isle.
