Boy stuck in supermarket game
Thursday, January 8, 2004 Posted: 1535 GMT (11:35 PM HKT)

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.


Novotny sits inside the machine on Saturday as firefighters figure out how to get him out.


Ha!  Laugh out loud

And what did he do with the stick he got ?

Personnally, I would have prefered a furry toy.

Anyway, SQ for a non understandable topic header, you get a catinthebag award :

I wonder how much they spent trying to get him out with that little claw?
It must have been hard, it can barely lift the stuffed animals in there.

Those machines are nothing but a scam. It is nearly impossible to retrieve any of the prizes.
