“He loves machines with calipers…”
A boy is “trapped” in a machine withsoft toys and was rescued by Queensland Police in Brisbane. The toddler was trapped inside the machine after being dragged into the prize compartment.
Police released a video of the rescue, which showed little Ethan, who did not appear to be afraid andin a hurry and both to be freed, as he was surrounded by a mountain of “Hello Kitty” stuffed animals while the police who rushed to the scene tried to find a way to get him out.
Ethan followed the officers' instructions and went to one end of the machine. After he closed his eyes to avoid injury, they broke the glass and freed him, according to the Daily Mail.
Ethan was then safely returned to his family. “You won a prize, which one do you want?”, one of the police officers jokingly told him. Ethan's father, Timothy Hopper, told reporters Thursday that it was “unbelievable” how quickly his son got into the machine with the calipers after he turned his back for a “split second “, while they were out shopping. “He loves machines with calipers…As he always does, he opened the flap, to become an opportunist. Then, in a split second, he crawled into the machine, the door closing behind him. He stood up and realized what happened and he was the king of the mountain.” Hopper said his son had a fantastic time inside the machine, where he stayed for about 10-15 minutes.
