Toddler crawls inside toy prize machine.

A young girl is safe after crawling into a toy machine inside a Pennsylvania mall.

The incident happened Wednesday night at the Mall at Robinson food court.

The 2-year-old girl crawled into the stuffed animal claw machine and couldn't get back out.

"When we got inside there was the cutest little girl in a pink outfit sucking her binky inside with the other toys," said Moon Run Fire Chief Paul Kashmer.

The girl's mother told Kashmer that she climbed in the machine in a matter of seconds. Kashmer said the machine's hole was large enough for two toddlers to fit through.

"She said, 'I was sitting at the table and I looked over and she's in the machine,' " said Kashmer. "I'd like to see the opening a little smaller. I think they should look into that."

Police said it took about 15 minutes for firefighters to arrive and remove the girl, who wasn't injured in the incident.

The mother of the girl says she wants the machines taken out of all malls.
