Amherst firefighters rescue girl who got arm stuck in vending machine
An Amherst middle school student got her arm stuck in a vending machine Thursday after she reached in to grab a water that wouldn’t come out. The fire department was called to rescue the cold, embarrassed girl. The girl reached into the refrigerated machine at about 3 p.m. Thursday at Amherst Regional Middle School. “We just had to keep her calm and say, ‘No, we’re not going to cut off your arm, we’re going to get you out,’” said Fire Chief Tim Nelson.
