The video of a child walking inside a toy hunting machine in a mall in Rio de Janeiro went viral on social media this Wednesday (17).
In the images you can see the boy’s mother trying to get him out of the toy. “Look at Mommy,” she calls repeatedly, while her son is distracted by the teddy bears.

According to information from NorteShopping, located in the Cachambi neighborhood, in the north of Rio de Janeiro, the boy was rescued by the security team.
“The little prankster was removed from the equipment, complete with a teddy bear, to the applause of people who stopped to watch the unusual scene,” the establishment said in a statement.
The statement also says that the toy was isolated and that the mall is investigating with the machine operator what happened to prevent other cases from occurring.
THE CNN contacted the child’s mother, but did not receive a response until publication.
