Kael Ireland, from Lincoln, Nebraska, was only 3 years old when his mother, Ashley Ireland, noticed he was missing. She was terrified! "Where is Kael?! Did someone kidnap him?! Did he somehow leave by himself?!" All these questions started racing through her mind. She called the police right away. The police did not waste any time investigating, but they didn't have to look too far.
Apparently Kael had opened the door without his mother knowing it. He walked across the street by himself and went into Madsen's Bowling & Billiards unnoticed!
He then went to the game section where older kids and adults play video games. Kael noticed all the stuffed animals in the machine called "Bear Claw". To win you first install a quarter, then maneuver the claw via a joystick to your item and try to pick it up and drop it in the chute. But you almost never win.
Quarterless and too short to reach, Kael did the next best thing; he crawled inside the machine and right up the chute! JACKPOT! Now he had all of them to play with. He was in there several minutes without anyone knowing. Finally, the police tracked him down and reunited him with his mother, after they called the Bear Claw Company and sent over a repairman. Kael left with a stuffed animal of his choice and his mother left relieved!
