What a hero.

WELL, IT HAS happened. A kid in Tipperary got stuck in one of those claw machines.

His little face!

Our little hero is Jamie Bracken-Murphy, who crawled into one of the machines in a play centre in Nenagh because he wanted a teddy. His dad Damien explained how the event unfolded in the most succinct of all Facebook statuses:

> In play centre.
> Takes eyes off 3 year old mischievous son for 6 seconds.
> Hears muffled complaint near the amusements.
> Look up, see this.
> What do?

What do, indeed


Little Jamie struggled to find his way out, but luckily help was on hand.

He was rescued by an off-duty fireman who encouraged him to climb back out the way he’d gone in.

He and his brother Shane both got a free toy out of it.

Damien told DailyEdge.ie that he was delighted with the loot, and here’s the proof:
