Last Wednesday, July 12th, a man in Corpus Christi, Texas, renovating a drive-through ATM at Bank of America, got stuck inside the bank’s vault, behind the ATM. Problem? He left his cell phone in his car. He could not call for help. He tried shouting, but bank customers continued driving up to the ATM, withdrawing money and leaving with no response to the man’s cries for help. So the man wrote a note, “Please help. I’m stuck in here, and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss.”
The message included the employer’s phone number. He slipped the note through the receipt slot. Someone called the police, and arriving officers were surprised to hear a voice coming from the ATM. They thought it was a joke. The police kicked in a door and rescued the man who spent two hours inside the vault before being freed. One officer told local TV, "Everyone is okay, but you will never see this in your life, that somebody was stuck in the ATM, it was just crazy."
