Toddler Gets Stuck Inside Claw Machine

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a toddler has been reunited with his mother after employees found him playing inside a claw crane machine at a Nebraska bowling alley.
    
Lincoln police say a 24-year-old woman called 911 Monday afternoon because her 3-year-old son was missing from her apartment.
    
Employees at the bowling alley across the street meanwhile called police to say a small boy was playing with stuffed animals inside the coin-operated machine.
    
It was unclear how the boy ended up inside the claw crane machine. A representative from the vending machine company let him out and he was reunited with his mother a short time later. He was not hurt.
    
Police say the mother was not cited because she quickly reported that her son was missing and there were no indications of neglect.

    A weird Florida mystery: Meat falling from the sky

    Thursday, July 20 2017 3:52 PM EDT2017-07-20 19:52:33 GMT

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Meat falling from the sky is weird, even by Florida standards. But that's what happened at 4 a.m. Saturday when a 15-pound bag of frozen pork landed on the Deerfield Beach home of Travis Adair. Adair said Thursday that the package hit the roof with a "big bang." He thought it was thunder, but his wife later went outside and found two bundles next to the house and three on the roof.
