GREENWICH, Conn. — Remember when your mom told you not to reach your hand into a gumball machine or it would get stuck? Turns out she was right.

Greenwich firefighters responded Saturday with Engine 1 and Rescue 5 — along with Greenwich Police Department and Greenwich EMS —  to a help child whose hand was stuck in a gumball machine.

The machine was disassembled, and the child was freed without injury, firefighters said in a Facebook post.
