LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in Lincoln say a toddler was not hurt after getting stuck inside a claw crane machine at a bowling alley.

Lincoln police say a woman called Monday afternoon to report her 3-year-old son missing from her apartment.

Authorities later discovered the boy had ended up inside a claw crane machine at a bowling alley across the street. Patrons at the bowling alley spotted the boy playing with stuffed animals inside the machine.

The machine’s vendor was contacted to let the boy out. He was reunited with his mother a short time later.

Police say the mother was not cited because she immediately contacted police about the missing child.
