A 17-year-old skateboarding teen got his arm stuck in a vending machine in National City on Saturday morning and needed firefighters to help get him loose.
The teen, who is a Sweetwater High School student, put his arm into the vending machines receiving slot to try and steal a soda, but his arm got wedged inside the slot, NBC San Diego reports.
Someone riding the trolley saw the teen sitting next to the machine and called the police.
When the police were unsuccessful getting the teen free, and keys for the vending machine couldn't be found, firefighters were called in.
San Diego firefighters used their axes to chop at the sides of the vending machines. When that didn't work, the rescuers tried using crowbars, but that didn't work either.
Finally, a rotary saw and air chisel was used to dismantle the machine enough so the teen could get his arm out.
After an hour the teen was finally free and paramedics treated him for scraps which he received when he tried to get his arm out on his own.
The police took him into custody for petty theft. No word if he ever got his soda.
