LINCOLN, Nebraska (KETV)-
A curious toddler after a Curious George stuffed animal ended up inside a toy crane machine at a bowling alley.
The toddler, paying no attention to the growing crowd of adults around the machine, was happily playing with the stuffed animals inside the machine Monday night.
He apparently crawled through the prize door, over the safety stop inside, scaled into the toy pit, and played inside the machine without fear or worry.
Meanwhile, a mother across the street was panicking, and called police to report her son was missing.
Employees at the bowling alley called the machine vendor and police to get the contraption open.
Officers were in the area looking for the reported missing toddler, and were able to quickly reunite mother and son.
The boy was not hurt in his adventure, and even got to keep one of the stuffed animals as a souvenir.
Officers say the mother will not be cited because she reported her child missing right away.
