Boy in vending machine

Boy in vending machine

Titusville Fire posted about the incident on Facebook, saying thankfully an off-duty firefighter was at the Beef O'Brady's restaurant where this happened.

"Oftentimes we say to ourselves that you never know what the next shift will bring". That's what draws people to public safety, the unexpected.

A young boy who was really set on getting a stuffed toy from a claw-style vending machine at a Florida restaurant ended up getting stuck inside it on Wednesday, according to officials. "Well, today was no exception", the department stated on Facebook.

Mason sat in the machine on a bed of stuffed toys, calmly watching firefighters work to free him.

Mason was rescued within a few minutes, and able to go back to dinner with his friends. "Pretty sure it won't be the same as their last".

Mason's story has a happy ending though.

"Kid might have a prosperous future as a contortionist or an escape artist", said one. Genius! Why didn't I ever think to do this?! Apparently, I was playing the animal/claw machine all wrong as a child!

And yes, Mason did get the toy he wanted.
