The only way he could get it

Ok we have all seen them - the toy machines in supermarkets and malls where you put a coin in the slot and then use the pincer gadget to try to grab the soft toy of your choice and drop it into the tube so you can claim it.  I have seen many try never actually seen anyone get a toy out of those machines And I do know my skill limitations.
Young lad in Cairns didn't know his limitations  -was using  one of these machines - didn't secure his toy so he managed to open the door of machine and crawled in.  News reports that he popped up between a penguin and a teddy bear.  Then couldn't get out.
Apparently they dismantled the machine to get boy out.  Think I would have been tempted to use pincer gadget!
Not mentioned whether child ended up with toy - penguin, teddy bear or other
What is more amazing is this is not the first time this has happened.
