A repairman got trapped in an ATM room of Bank of America today. As he had no way to contact help, he slipped out notes that contained his boss’ number to help him out. The repairman didn’t have any casualties, save for an ATM door.
According to CNN, the repairman had no easy way out of the situation as he didn’t have his phone with him. Apparently, the authorities confirmed that the repairman left his phone in his truck. Additionally, no other staff was around to help him get out of the room.
The man spent two hours inside the locked ATM room. The repairman’s was changing the locks in a room connected to the ATM machine outside.
All the repairman could do was slip out “help me” notes through the ATM receipt slots and hope for the best. “Please help. I’m stuck in here, and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss,” said the repairman in his “help me” notes along with a phone number.
Due to the nature of the note, many customers ignored his plea as they though his request was just a prank. However, one customer made the call and the rescue for the trapped man started. The authorities said that they could hear a slightly inaudible voice coming from the ATM machine, which was the trapped man’s yelps of help.
“Sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine,” Corpus Christi police senior officer Richard Olden told KZTV. The police had to kick one door down to free the trapped man inside the ATM room. “You’ll never see this again in your life that somebody is stuck in the ATM machine, It was just crazy,” said the officer. The repairman had no reported major injuries after he was rescued.
