SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) -- The joystick-operated toy crane used to snare a prize in this supermarket game could've nabbed more than just a cheap stuffed animal -- how about a shot at Timmy Novotny?

Authorities said the 7-year-old boy somehow crawled into the glass enclosure and got stuck.

Sheboygan Fire shift commander Mark Zittel said the call came in Saturday from a Piggly Wiggly as a "child stuck in a toy machine." The boy had to be rescued with the help of a locksmith.

"You expect to see an arm or a finger. But here's a 7-year-old boy sitting with the stuffed animals," Zittel said.

He said the boy crawled through about an 8-inch-by-10-inch chute where the toys come out. When he tried to get back out his way was blocked.

"His dad was three feet away at a pay phone," Zittel said. "He was talking on the phone and he said the next thing he turned around and the kid was in the thing."

Zittel said the boy stayed calm as firefighters moved the game machine to the back of the store and a locksmith opened the main loading door. The process took about an hour.

"There was no panic," Zittel said. "We could have broke the glass if there was an emergency."

Rescuers haven't figured out how the boy was able to crawl into the game.

"His dad was three feet away at a pay phone," Zittel said. "He was talking on the phone and he said the next thing he turned around and the kid was in the thing."

All i can think of right now, is when Homer fucked up getting a newspaper and somehow Maggie ended up in the newspaper box, and homer had no more spare change to get her out.

jake, please picture turning around for a sec and then turning back and seeing your child in one of those stupid games.

almost as good as *that* visual is picturing him climbing into the thing.


p.s. if he could climb in why couldn't he climb out? lazy americans...

Man, if he climbed in, and he was my son, I'd leave him there for the highest bidder (no joke).

I bet you it was one of those "I got my finger stuck and now I cant get it out" situations.
