Man stuck in cashpoint slips 'help me' note through slot

Man stuck in cashpoint slips 'help me' note through slot

One of his notes read: "Please help".

The notes explained the situation, and asked customers to call the contractor's boss. It wasn't until someone actually took his notes seriously that the authorities were summoned to help the guy out. At this point the officers made a decision to break the back door, ending his roughly 2-hour ordeal. This is not all that surprising considering that "candid camera" shows do things just like this to see how people will react.

Padraig Harrington on the Irish Open: "We can't take it for granted"
McIlroy missed the cut in the Irish Open three straight years before rallying to beat Russell Knox last year. A quite stunning course record 64 lifted the former Irish Amateur champion to -13 and a share of 14th place.

Corpus Christi Police Senior Officer Olden confirmed the incident to KRISTV.

At first, Olden said he thought someone was playing a prank. Eventually, however, the police were called and heard "a faint voice from inside the machine". Pretty sure you would pinch yourself to check if you had entered a dimension where ATM Machines can communicate, think it's a practical joke or if you're a little timid, run for your life. "It's got to be a joke", said Olden.

Massive fire burns through California apartment complex
Alameda County sent additional units to the scene to help Oakland firefighters monitor the local neighborhoods. Part of the structure has collapsed into a street, and a crane was spinning, but has not collapsed.

But this was no joke. He was changing a lock inside a room that connects to the bank's ATM around 2:00 in the afternoon on Wednesday. He did not have his keycard or his phone so the contractor was not able to get out or contact the other Bank of America employees to get help. Police arrived and helped him out - before arresting him. In desperation, he chose to slip an SOS message through the receipt slot, which was still in service, in hope that some bank customer would read it and help him.

An officer kicked down the door to reveal the author of the notes.
