This could definitely use more of a writeup, and despite having lots of similar stories involving people getting trapped in tight spaces while trying to retrieve mobile phones, car keys, etc. I'm willing to accept this solely for the fact that this happened in a dinosaur statue leg.

Totally agree with Bruce = people getting stuck happens all the time - but getting stuck inside a dinosaur leg - that's a new one to me
