A Texas man was rescued from inside an ATM after he sent desperate "help me" notes through the receipt slot.

According to local police, he was changing an electronic lock inside the room that connected to the machine, but had left his phone inside his truck.

They couldn't get the door open, so they had to kick it down.

"When he realised he was trapped with no way to communicate, he resorted to sliding notes through the slot". He said he could hear a voice coming from the ATM and thought it was a prank, but just in case, he called the police.

When police arrived they inspected the machine and said they heard "little voices" coming from the machine.

One note read: "Please help".




Initially, bystanders thought that the notes were part of a practical joke, but then one of them thought to call the police.

However, not all "help me." notes have such happy endings.

However, people thought it was a joke, until one lucky saviour chose to give the police a call on the off-chance. Some of the notes implored people to call his boss. "It's got to be a joke", officer Richard Olden recounted.

The contractor was freed after roughly three hours. "It's got to be a joke", he added.

The officers verified the man's employment with the man's superior, Hooper said.

"You ll never see this again in your life that somebody is stuck in the ATM machine", Olden said.
