Titusville, FL- Firefighters rescued a boy from a Titusville, Florida restaurant on Wednesday after he became stuck inside a claw machine.

The fire department shared photos of the boy and the rescue effort.  The boy crawled into the machine trying to rescue a stuffed animal prize.

“Often times we say to ourselves that you never know what the next shift will bring,” the department said. “The unexpected ways we get to help people in their time of need. That’s what draws people to public safety, the unexpected. Well today was no exception. This evening little Mason was enjoying some food and decided he wanted a stuffed animal”

He was able to crawl into the machine through the prize slot.

“He wanted it so bad, he climbed into the game to get that toy!! Thankfully he was never in any distress as one of our own Lt.’s happen to be there off duty and assessed the situation. Engine 10 led by Lt. Abernathy, made short work of the situation,” the department continued. “Driver Operator Lane and Firefighter George were able to get Mason out in short order with minimal damage to the game. We love a happy ending and are glad everything worked out. Mom, Mason and friends went back to eating dinner, E10 back to their station to await the next call. Pretty sure it won’t be the same as their last.”
