Man gets stuck in ATM and sends help note to pedestrians


In Corpus Christi, Texas, an ATM repair technician became stuck inside the ATM machine he was fixing Wednesday.

With no way out and completely hidden by the machine, he scribbled notes asking for help and tried to slip the notes through the receipt slot.

According to authorities, the man got stuck in the small ATM room at a Bank of America. He was there attempting to change the machine’s locking mechanism.

The man had left his phone in his truck and had no way of calling for help, so he started slipping “help me” notes to people using the ATM.

One of the notes passed through the machine to a user read: “Please Help. I’m stuck in here, and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss.” He sent several messages until eventually, one of the ATM users called the police.

The man was rescued from the ATM. No injuries have been reported.
