TITUSVILLE, Fla. — When a young Florida boy wanted a stuffed toy, he crawled inside a claw-style vending machine in the play area of a restaurant to fetch one. And he got stuck inside the glass-encased structure.
Thankfully, off-duty firefighter Jeremy House was also having dinner at the Beef O’Brady’s restaurant in Titusville, on Florida’s Atlantic Coast. He yelled for someone to call 911 and his colleagues from a nearby fire station joined him in rescuing the boy.
‘‘He went in, but obviously he couldn’t come back out the same way,’’ Battalion Chief Gregory Sutton said.
The child sat atop the stuffed toys while firefighters took five minutes to get him out.
Sutton said the boy was embarrassed, but wasn’t in distress. And the machine sustained minimal damage.
