Firefighters free boy's hand from gumball machine

Greenwich firefighters say they helped free a little boy whose hand got stuck in a gumball machine.



Pictures of the incident were posted on the Greenwich firefighters' Facebook page.



After attempts to free the 4-year-old boy's fingers with oil failed, barbers at the barber shop on Church Street called firefighters.



The firefighters say they took apart the gumball machine while they calmed the boy down with a lollipop. 



The boy was eventually freed and still got his haircut.
