Man trapped in ATM slips help notes to customers

Man trapped in ATM slips help notes to customers”

A MAN who got locked inside an ATM room slipped "help me" notes through a receipt slot to be rescued.

A Texas repairman found that one of the hardest parts about being trapped while servicing a bank's automated teller machine was convincing customers coming for cash that he was stuck.

According to Associated Press, the man became trapped inside an ATM when he was changing a lock to a Bank of America room that leads to the back of the ATM, Corpus Christi police Lt. Chris Hooper said.

He wrote a note which read: "Please help, I'm stuck here and I don't have a phone please call at 210", and the rest of the phone number has been scribbled out since for obvious reasons. "Please call my boss", a note broadcast on Houston TV station KHOU showed.

"We have a once-in-a-lifetime situation that you'll probably never see or hear about again", Corpus Christi Police Officer Richard Olden told a local Fox affiliate.

Customer after customer assumed - quite understandably - that the notes had to be a prank.

Officers initially thought it was a joke as well.

"We come out here, and sure enough, we can hear a little voice coming from the machine".

Now, while most of us would panic like f*ck and think "great, this is how I die", he decided that by hell or high water, he was getting out of the machine. "It was just insane".
