Missing toddler found safe inside arcade claw machine

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLN, NE - No it's not a delayed April Fool's prank. This actually happened and the picture is no joke. File this one under the "you can't make this stuff up" tab!

A 3-year-old boy, feared missing by his mother, was found safe and sound inside an arcade claw machine in Nebraska on Tuesday.

Police were called to a home in Lincoln, Neb., on a report of a missing child. At the same time, employees at nearby Madsen's Bowling and Billiards found the missing child playing with toys inside their claw machine, where he became stuck after apparently crawling inside.

The boy's mother told police she was in the bathroom and he must have slipped out of an unlocked door. The boy was freed without injury and reunited with his mother.
