Texas ATM's choices: deposit, withdraw, release trapped repairman

Texas man trapped in ATM

It was a repairman who had got stuck inside of an ATM and was forcing notes through the cash dispenser's receipt slot to gain the attention of people.

Numerous note-recipients thought the help request was a joke, but someone did eventually call police and the man was freed.

The contractor was inside the ATM's vault room trying to fix the electronic lock and was trapped by the same lock.

The man later told the police he had been screaming for help.

It had to be a joke, the responding officers believed.

The contractor had been working on changing the lock to a room that was attached to the ATM and got stuck inside the machine. "Please call my boss".

A man in the USA state of Texas was rescued after getting trapped inside an ATM for 3 hours.

Having left his cell phone in the truck, the man was unable to call for help.

"The poor guy was just mortified", Pena said.

Police freed the man, but since there was no crime committed, details and records are slim, Lt Hooper said.

When officers arrived, they also thought it was a prank.

Thanks to the note, they knew the number.
