A young Titusville, Florida, boy named Mason was rescued Wednesday night by an off-duty firefighter after he managed to get stuck inside a toy claw vending machine.

The young boy was dining with his family at the Central Florida Beef O'Brady's restaurant when he told his family he wanted a stuffed animal from the claw machine. Minutes later the boy was found trapped inside the toy claw machine having wedged himself into the glass cage but unable to escape, a Titusville Fire and Emergency Services Facebook post showed late Wednesday.

Off-duty firefighter Jeremy House was luckily also dining at the same restaurant and called for other patrons to dial 911 as he and several others rescued the crying youngster without even destroying the claw game.

"This evening little Mason was enjoying some food and decided he wanted a stuffed animal. He wanted it so bad, he climbed into the game to get that toy!! Thankfully he was never in any distress as one of our own Lt.’s happen to be there off duty and assessed the situation," reads the Titusville Fire and Emergency Services Facebook post.

The department's post continued, "Engine 10 led by Lt. Abernathy, made short work of the situation. Driver Operator Lane and Firefighter George were able to get Mason out in short order with minimal damage to the game. We love a happy ending and are glad everything worked out. Mom, Mason and friends went back to eating dinner, E10 back to their station to await the next call. Pretty sure it won’t be the same as their last."

Battalion Chief Gregory Sutton told the Associated Press, "He went in, but obviously couldn't come back out the same way." Although the boy was distressed during his emergency removal from the claw machine, it took just 5 minutes for firefighters to reinstate the boy's freedom from the glass case.
