6-year-old girl gets trapped inside "claw" arcade game

FRISCO, Texas- A little girl in Texas is grounded, with no sweets or television, but she sure has a good story to tell for the reason why.

Six-year-old Juliette Grimes was eating at a pizza parlor in Frisco, Texas when her older sister delivered an irresistible dare, reports CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.

"I haven't told my mom this yet," said big sister Katy, 8, to CBS DFW. "But, maybe, it was a double dog dare."

Juliette said she just wanted to get her sister a ball from the machine.

"I opened the door, and I had my legs out so I opened the door, then put my whole body in there ... but I couldn't get out," said Juliette.

Juliette's mom and other adults were keeping an eye on the arcade room, but they missed the moment Juliette climbed into the shoot where the prizes fall down, trapping herself inside the arcade game.

"If there's a boundary, they're meant for other kids," said her mother Cecilia Green. "Not for her ... anything and everything is a challenge."

Frisco Fire Department came to the rescue. They were able to free Juliette from the game.

"I don't think she's going to do it again," Green told CBS DFW. "Hopefully, at least, another few years, at least."

Older sister Katy was quick to point the finger at her younger sister.

"I hope you learned your lesson!" she giggled.
