WATCH: Man stuck inside ATM gets creative with ‘please help me’ notes

Man stuck in ATM help note

A man trapped in an ATM was rescued after slipping notes begging for help through the receipt slot, according to authorities.

The man was a contractor who was working on the machine when he accidentally locked himself inside, according to Corpus Christi police officer Gena Pena.

He became stuck when changing a lock to a room that leads to the back of the ATM, said police in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Lieutenant Chris Hooper said: “Apparently he left his cellphone and the swipe card he needed to get out of the room outside in his truck.”

When he realised he was trapped with no way to communicate, he resorted to sliding notes through the slot.

One read: “Please help. I’m stuck in here and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss …”

People withdrawing cash though it was a prank, but luckily one called police who heard a faint voice from inside the machine.

They kicked down the door and freed the red-faced worker – his name has so far not been released.

Corpus Christi police officer Richard Olden summed up the bizarre incident: “You’ll never see this again in your life that somebody’s stuck in the ATM machine. It was just great.”
