Texan Escapes ATM by Slipping «Help Me» Notes via Receipt Slot
Local Editor

A Texas man was rescued from inside an ATM after he sent desperate "help me" notes through the receipt slot.

The unnamed contractor became stuck inside the Bank of America ATM in Corpus Christi on Wednesday when he was changing the lock of the room that leads to the machine.

"Apparently he left his cellphone and the swipe card he needed to get out of the room outside in his truck," Corpus Christi police lieutenant Chris Hooper said, as cited by KXAS.

The man attempted to get help by writing notes reading, "Please help, I'm stuck in here," and passing them through the receipt slot of the ATM. Some of the notes implored people to call his boss.

According to Hooper, some bank customers assumed the notes were some sort of a prank, but eventually some did call the police, who arrived shortly after and heard a faint voice coming from inside the ATM.

"We come out here, and sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine," Senior Officer Richard Olden told KRISTV. "So we are thinking this is a joke. It's got to be a joke."

The police were able to rescue the man by kicking down the door. He is thought to have been trapped inside for two hours.

"You'll never see this again in your life, that somebody was stuck in the ATM machine," Olden said. "It was just crazy."
