Firefighters rescue boy from prize machine.

Byline: ABC 7 Chicago

Firefighters had to rescue a 3-year-old boy Thursday evening after he got stuck inside a claw machine in a Palatine coin laundry.

When the Palatine firefighters arrived to the 1200 block of West Dundee Road, they found a boy completely inside the prize machine, which was filled with stuffed animals. He was trapped but not injured.

Crews had to take a portion of the machine apart to get in through the top of the machine. Then one firefighter dangled head first into the machine, grabbed the boy and passed him to another firefighter.

The boy was then reunited with his mother.
