NATIONAL CITY, Calif. — Firefighters on Saturday rescued a 17-year-old boy whose arm became stuck in a vending machine while he was trying to steal a soda.
The Mayor warned you that sugary sodas were bad for you, but did you listen? Noooooo, you didn’t and see what happened.
“Initially, we thought if we could get a hold of somebody to come out that had a key that we would be able to open up the door and access the machine and do very little damage, but nobody had the key,” said Michael Lafreniere, who is with the National City Fire Department.
The amazing part here is that someone from the fire department thought of trying to get a key before attacking it with the tools. I mean, who could resist?
After medics released the teen, he was taken into custody by police, who said he may face charges of petty theft.
What’s the over under on how long it is before the charges are dropped and he sues the vending machine company and the soda manufacturer?
