A Guy Got Trapped In An ATM And Sent Note For Help

A contractor who got trapped behind an ATM was finally freed after sliding desperate 'help me' notes through the receipt slot.

The man was fixing a lock inside the ATM room at a Bank of America location in Corpus Christi, Texas when he accidentally locked himself in. 

He realized he was stuck and had left his cell phone in his truck, so the contractor resorted to posting notes begging customers using the drive-through ATM for help.

There was one problem. The situation was so bizarre, that most of the customers wrote the note off as a practical joke.

Eventually, one ATM user did take it seriously and called the contractor's boss, who called the cops. but even the police were skeptical.

 One officer said, 'We come out here, and sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine. So we are thinking this is a joke. It's got to be a joke.'

Cops kicked down the door and freed the contractor after more than 2 hours.
