A woman was rescued after she crawled into and got trapped inside a claw machine Tuesday.

According to the Incheon Seobu Fire Station, the 165-centimeter tall 20-year-old had somehow managed to crawl through a slot in the machine in a drunken state, in an attempt to steal the stuffed toys inside it. 


A local wire service quoted a fire department staff as saying, “It’s a mystery how she got inside. She was taller than the average women.”

The hole was 30 cm in width and height.

The fire department rescued her at around 4 a.m. by drilling and cutting out a side of the steel box.

The woman is being held responsible for compensation related to the damaged machine.

The police plan to book the woman and her friend under charges of special larceny.
