Maybe he figured out that this is the only way you can score a prize from this stupid machine!

A three year-old boy from Lincoln, Nebraska slipped out of an unlocked apartment door while his mom was in the bathroom, and wandered into a nearby bowling alley. As his mother was reporting him as missing to a 911 dispatcher, employees and patrons at Madsen's Bowling and Billiards discovered Kael, happily playing with toys...inside their claw machine!

No one can figure out how he got in to the arcade game, but they finally got him out without injury and he was reunited with his mother. He also got to keep a toy.

See the toddler inside the claw machine in the video.
