Toddler Climbs Into Claw Crane Machine at Idaho Arcade

An Idaho toddler whose father was momentarily distracted took advantage of the situation and climbed into a claw crane machine at a Twin Falls arcade.

Speaking to Storyful, Susannah Child, the boy’s mother, explained, “Dad was helping big brother open a toy and little brother decided that it was a good opportunity to try and get in the arcade machine.”

The father was oblivious at first to his young son’s movements, but was eventually notified by the boy’s grandfather, Steve Child, who then filmed the comical conclusion of the incident.

The toddler was eventually pulled from the machine by his feet without injury, though also without a desired toy. Credit: Savannah Child via Storyful
