Man stuck inside cash machine posts disturbing messages begging for help through money slot

A man who found himself stuck inside a cash machine confused customers when he started posting disturbing messages through the slot along with their money.

The company contractor had entered the safe room behind a Bank of America ATM in Corpus Christi, Texas, to carry out some maintenance work.

He was changing a lock and accidentally got locked in.

Without his phone, he was unable to call for help and decided to cunningly slide an SOS message through the machine to customers outside instead.

“Please help,” he scribbled. “I’m stuck in here and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss at 210-***-****.”

Most of the baffled public drawing out cash thought the whole thing a bizarre joke. Fortunately for the worker, one took it seriously, and called the police.

“We come out here, and sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine,” Senior Officer Richard Olden told KZTV . ”

So we are thinking this is a joke. It’s got to be a joke.”

But police kicked down the door – and there, inside, was a cash machine maintenance man. He’d been stuck inside for about two hours.
