A contractor had to be rescued after he got stuck inside an ATM room and slipped "please help" notes to customers through the machine. He was there to fix the door lock and wound up locked in.

Some customers considered the notes to be a joke but one person called police, who arrived on the scene. Cops say a contractor was changing a lock to a room connected to the ATM, but ended up getting stuck inside!

Police often responded to unusual calls, but this situation was one for the record books. "It's got to be a joke", Senior Officer Richard Olden said. "Please call my boss", according to police.

"Apparently he left his cellphone and the swipe card he needed to get out of the room outside in his truck", Hooper said. So we are thinking this is a joke.

"You'll never see this again in your life that somebody's stuck in the ATM machine".

Responding officers kicked down the door to free the man after he was trapped for almost two hours.

In other ATM news, four members of a large NY crime ring pleaded guilty to "skimming" ATM machines in order to steal card details and pin numbers. In this particular case, the thieves were able to make off with more than $428,000.
