A kid in Florida really wanted a stuffed animal from inside a claw machine — so much that he got inside, and got stuck. A firefighter rescued him quickly.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. In Titusville, Fla., a little boy named Mason really wanted a stuffed animal from one of those arcade games where you use the metal claw to pick stuff up. Who needs the claw? Mason decided to climb through the small door where the animals come out. He got stuck. He was sitting calmly, surrounded by stuffed animals. An off-duty firefighter who was eating dinner saw him and rescued him. Before you ask - no, he did not use the claw to pick up Mason. It's MORNING EDITION.
