A three-year-old boy who refused to come up empty handed has been rescued after climbing into a soft toy vending machine, north-west of Sydney.
After prying open the door of the arcade game at The Australian Hotel and Brewery at Rouse Hill on Anzac Day, the youngster soon realised there was no way out and had to be rescued by firefighters.
Riverstone Fire and Rescue Captain David Richards received a call from the boy’s frantic mother just after 2pm but said the boy wasn’t quite so fazed when they showed up.
“When we arrived, we found the boy had crawled through the hole in the machine but was enjoying himself, playing with the toys,” Captain Richards told News Corp.
“I asked him how are you my little man and he said he felt good.
“We gave him a drink of cold water as he may have been dehydrated because he was inside for a few minutes.”
After safely freeing the boy, Captain Richards said it was the first time he had ever rescued someone from a vending machine.
The ambitious toddler is not the only one to suffer the same fate, with a Cairns boy and Irish toddler making headlines for their own failed toy heists.
This little boy thought it would be fun to climb into a drain, but it turned out not to be the best place to have a play-date.
This video had us all asking the question, how on earth did he get his head there in the first place!
