A Texas man trapped inside an ATM was saved after writing desperate pleas for help and slipping them through the receipt slot, KRIS reports.
The unidentified man was working on a lock at a Bank of America in Corpus Cristi Wednesday when he became trapped behind the ATM.
Police told the Daily News that the man was stuck for over two hours and although he was saved thanks to the notes, several people did not bother to follow up on the notes on their receipts.
“Please help. I’m stuck in here, and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss,” one note read, according to KRIS.
One customer eventually flagged down the police to show them the note.
The man’s supervisor did not know how to get him out so police had to kick down the door to the service room where he was trapped.
