Man gets trapped inside ATM

A contractor accidentally locked himself inside a room connected to an ATM in Corpus Christi, Texas.

It didn't seem like much of a serious issue until he realized he left his cell phone in his truck, Fox 8 reports.

He began feeding "help me" notes through the machine's receipt slot, desperate to gain the attention of anyone who used the machine.

Most people assumed that it was a gag, but one thankfully contacted the police.

"We come out here and sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine," Corpus Christi Senior Officer Richard Olden told Fox 8

"Everyone is okay, but you will never see this in your life. That somebody was stuck in the ATM was just crazy."
