Life as a toddler is all about learning, discovering new things, and figuring out the world around you. But sometimes, this constant trial and error can leave toddlers in some pretty sticky situations. One young toddler went viral after he somehow got stuck inside one of his favorite toys. The images of a befuddled and slightly embarrassed young boy are cycling through the internet right now, and everyone is having a good old fashioned chuckle.
The boy's name is Luca, and he's almost two years old. The toy that caused him trouble seems to be some kind of wooden box type structure, with monkeys and jungle decorations along the side. According to News 9, the box is designed to teach young children about different shapes... But in the end, this toy taught Luca a very different lesson...
Looking at the box, it seems inconceivable that a child would ever fit inside. But somehow, Luca found a way to get almost his entire body wedged firmly within the confines of this toy. Fear not - Luca didn't suffer any physical harm as a result... Aside from maybe his bruised pride and ego... The toddler definitely wore an expression of shame and embarrassment as his family took pictures of the hilarious debacle.
In fact, it was the local Police Department who took the photos and later posted them to the station's official Facebook page. After Luca's mother realized she couldn't get her son out of the toy, she played it safe and called emergency services. Sergeant Rick Hernandez was soon on the scene, and before Luca knew it, he was safe and free.
The boy's mother explained that the solution was actually quite easy. Although the jaws of life and various tools were considered, in the end, all it took was a few strong hands to pry the toy open and free the small child waiting inside. Although the toy is now ruined, Luca's mother Soona Choe decided to keep the box as a reminder of the day's hilarious events, and she'll jokingly show her son pictures of his little accident one day.
Although everything ended well in this situation, it could have been worse. If there's one thing we learned from today, it's the kids will find a way to get into all kinds of crazy situations - even if it seems physically impossible to do so. Toys are a potential hazard, so it's always important to keep an eye on children as they play.
