GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — New Jersey firefighters rescued a small child from inside a claw machine filled with bouncy balls on Wednesday.
Gloucester Township Fire District 6 posted on Facebook that the child had become trapped in the machine but was not injured and was reunited with their family after being removed.
“We like to challenge our personnel to be prepared for whatever is thrown their way,” the department said. “May’s training focused on rescue – including disentangling simulated patients from unique predicaments.”
Earlier this year, a 2-year-old boy in Alabama was also rescued after crawling into a claw machine.
