Child traps hand in sweet machine at Eastbourne pub
10:16am Sunday 14th July 2013 in News
A child was caught out by his sweet tooth after getting his hand trapped in a candy machine for 40 minutes.
Firefighters were called to a seven-year-old boy who had managed to get his hand stuck in a sweet dispenser at The Alexandra Arms in Seaside, Eastbourne, at 6.45pm last night.
The boy had pushed his hand into a three inch hole where the sweets come out of the machine and then twisted the handle of the machine pinning his hand.
Firefighters had to completely dismantle the machine to free the boy’s hand.
The boy was treated by paramedics who gave him a cold compress to reduce the swelling and bruising.
