Toddler rescued from toy crane machine in US mall

Submitted By AP Wire Service

MCKEES ROCKS, Pennsylvania (AP), Dec 10 - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl spent 15 minutes stuck inside a toy crane vending machine in a Pittsburgh-area mall.

Moon Run Fire Chief Paul Kashmer tells WPXI-TV that the girl didn't seem upset by the ordeal Wednesday night in the food court at the Mall of Robinson, in Robinson Township. Kashmer says firefighters arrived to find ``the cutest little girl in a pink outfit sucking her binky inside with the other toys.''

The girl apparently climbed up the chute into which the coin-operated crane drops prizes. Kashmer used a tool to pry open a door on the machine to reach the girl.

The vending company hasn't been identified.
