Damien Murphy went to a play center with his children in Ireland. For an instant, he took his eyes off his three-year-old son Jamie.
Annoyed with a claw machine, the boy took advantage of his dad’s distraction and got inside the machine to grab a prize for himself. Of course, he became trapped behind the glass.
“I tried to get him out, but it seemed like he did not have enough space to maneuver his way out, so I told him to be calm and wait while I got one of the staff to find the keys to the machine,” Murphy told the Irish Independent.
“An off duty fireman was there with his little son, and he is quite experienced with these sorts of things. He told Jamie to crouch down and move back further into the machine, which he did calmly, and the fireman shimmied him out,” he added.
