A scary moment happened for one mom from Lincoln, Nebraska when her missing son was found inside a claw arcade machine.

According to BuzzFeed, the mother noticed her son was missing from their apartment Tuesday at 5:30 pm. After calling the police, they discovered that the child was at Madsen Bowling & Billards stuck in an arcade machine.

Rachel Hildreth, an employee at the bowling alley said they believe the boy climbed through the prize door, which even has a safety stop then up to the toy machine.

Employees came to make sure the boy was OK, while the vendor used his key to let him out and even gave him a stuffed animal. The 3-year-old didn’t seem scared and was oblivious to the 20 people standing around the machine watching him.

We guess that’s a better way of winning a toy instead of wasting tons of quarters? Next time, he should just give his mom a head’s up.
