Belfast toddler trapped in toy machine


A toddler became trapped inside a 'claw crane' toy-grabbing machine in a west Belfast shopping centre on Thursday.

The incident, which happened at about 12:40 GMT, was recorded on a mobile phone by a man who works locally and uploaded by a friend to the video-sharing site YouTube.

Robert said the child was trapped in the toy machine for over half an hour.

"The part you see in my video is when it had only just happened," he said.

"The child got into the machine as we walked past, and I said 'You have no chance of getting her out' so I started filming to see what was going on.

"I didn't see the child get out as I had to go back to work. But I think they had to bust the lock on the machine to get her out."
