Child rescued at Acle Bridge

Postby hank » Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:29 pm

A child had to be rescued from inside an arcade machine last night after they crawled in through a flap.
The three-year-old managed to climb into a claw crane machine through the flap out of which those who win the crane game collect their toys and prizes.
Firefighters were called at 7.45pm to the A1064 Acle Bridge north of Acle.
They had to take the machine apart using tools to free the child from inside.
The flaps are designed so that they can only be opened from outside rather than inside the machine.

No doubt the child came out saying "the claw is my master".

Glad to hear all was well in the end.

Where were the parents? Our experiences this week confirm that you can't turn your back on a 3 year old for more than 10 seconds.

This is particularly the case in a pub next to a deep, fast-flowing river.

Hello Steve,

I tend to agree with you, children always have to be watched and guided with regards to what they do.

When our two boys were at that age and even younger, Christmas was a magic time and they were allowed to touch the chistmas tree and decorations, but only with one finger.

I am afraid that my hands tend to itch these days when I see and hear some parents dealing with their children. It must be an age thing I guess.

Hello FrankendEllen,

I guess we all made mistakes at some time or other.
Our youngest now 28 used to hide himself whilst we were shopping, he would sit under the cloths racks watching to see when you would start to panic.

Kids will be kids and you can't watch them 24/7 but when near the river then a closer eye should be on them.

The arcade at The Bridge is a good distance from the river and the garden is fenced.

Maybe we should hear the true facts from Phil or Ness before any judgement is passed on who was to blame.
