Game over! Toddler gets trapped inside toy-claw arcade machine (VIDEO)

Game over! Toddler gets trapped inside toy-claw arcade machine (VIDEO)
What do you do when you're desperate for that cuddly toy but you're all out of spare change? Simple: you climb inside that claw machine and you just take one - or two in the case of a three-year-old boy, who didn't want to leave out his brother.

Jamie Bracken-Murphy from Tipperary, Ireland, became a prize himself for ten minutes after getting trapped inside the game.

Surprisingly, James’s father wasn’t too surprised when he turned around and found his son in the arcade machine after hearing “muffled complaints,” he told the Irish Times.

“I wasn’t surprised at all really. He’s a very mischievous, sharp kid who’s always pushing boundaries,” he said.

A video of James stuck in the machine shows him looking a little perplexed, but unwilling to let go of two prizes he acquired during his quest.

The boy spent 10 minutes in the machine before staff, with the help of an off-duty fireman, helped get him out.

“He got to keep two dragon toys after picking them up inside. He’s not embarrassed about it or anything, he just laughed about the whole thing,” the boy’s father said.
