Lincoln, Neb. -- A young boy is safe after he was rescued from inside of a claw crane machine at a Lincoln, Neb. bowling alley.

ABC affiliate KETV in Omaha reports that it began around 5:30 p.m. when a frantic mother called 911 to report her 3-year-old son was missing from her apartment complex.

Patrons at the bowling alley across the street soon found the boy sitting inside the machine among the stuffed animals and flagged down police in the area. Employees called the vendor, who quickly arrived and got the boy out safely.

The boy and his mother were reunited, with the vendor even giving the boy one of the stuffed animals from inside of the machine. Police say the mother was not cited because she contacted police the moment she discovered him missing.
