Boy Gets Stuck In Vending Machine

A 4 year old boy from the remote Northern Territory of Australia spent 6 hours stuck in a vending machine.

The boy was on holiday with his family in Melbourne when he came across his first ever vending machine in the hotel.

While attempting to reach inside the machine for a packet of biscuits, his arm became stuck in the anti-theft mechanism.

 

Emergency services were called and had to cut the boy out of the machine with an angle grinder. He was later taken to Royal Children’s Hospital.
