Man stuck in cash machine feeds 'help' notes through receipt slot

A workman trapped inside a cash machine was forced to pass handwritten notes through the receipt slot to summon help - but customers thought it was a joke.

 

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.

 

Golly he must have been in there for minutes or maybe even a couple of hours. Makes the trauma suffered by people in Syria or Afghanistan or refugees adrift on a boat fleeing to southern Europe from one sort of hell or another seem trivial in comparison.

 

It's understandable why he hasn't stepped forward to release his name.

One wonders why kicking down the door seemed a better option than calling his boss to open the door or getting the swipe card from his truck assuming the genius hadn't locked it away securely.
