Missing Nebraska toddler found inside of a ‘claw machine’

A Nebraska 3-year-old boy was reported missing by his mother but was found safe and sound inside an arcade claw machine in a nearby bowling and pool hall. The boy is safe and sound as the story spreads across the Internet.

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.
Madsen’s vending machine company arrived to let him out.
According to police, the mother acted quickly and appropriately as soon as she realized her son was missing and there were no indications of neglect. She was not cited.
