It seems like the sort of bizarre situation that would only happen on an episode of Friends, but a man in Corpus Christi, Texas really found himself on the wrong side of the ATM glass earlier this week and lived to tell the tale.
An officer from the Corpus Christi Police Department summed up the dramatic rescue perfectly when he said that it was "a once in a lifetime situation that you will probably never see or hear again."
In case you were wondering about the physics of being trapped inside a cash machine, it turns out there's a small room behind the machines at most bank locations where the money is loaded in. The man was repairing a lock inside when the door closed on him, while his cell phone was outside in his truck.
Desperate to escape, the man actually had to pass notes out through the ATM's cash slot. "Please help, I'm stuck in here," one said, before listing a number for the contractor's boss.
