This story somehow manage to slip through my eyes until now.
Benwood, West Virginia -- A four-year-old girl climbed into a claw machine at a Kroger store in an attempt to get stuffed animals. She was stuck in the machine for about 20 minutes. (November 21, 2006)
You can watch a video report of this incident at WTOV-TV.
So (mainly three-year-old) boys no longer have the exclusive privilege of climbing into vending machines and getting stuck there.
