This turned out to be a pretty darn good week for Caleb Colmenero.
And that is quite a surprising turn of events for the two-year-old from San Jose who's panicked father called 911 on his behalf earilier this week.
On Tuesday morning little Caleb nearly lost his right pointer-finger after getting it stuck down a hole in the bed of his father's pickup. He was trying to find a Hot Wheels toy. It turns out it wasn't down there in the first place.
Thanks to a massive rescue effort by the San Jose Fire Department, Caleb was able to keep the finger and get his photo on the front page of the Mercury News.
Mattel e-mailed NBC Bay Area:
The Hot Wheels team found out about the article last night. This was a pretty traumatic event for Caleb and it had a happy ending except for the fact that the Hot Wheels was lost. We want to put a smile on Caleb’s face after having to endure such an event and we will send him a Hot Wheels package on Monday to replace his lost truck.
Also on Monday, Caleb will be the star of a reunion party with his rescuers who invited his family down to the fire house to celebrate their good fortune.
