A contractor had to be rescued after he got stuck inside an ATM room and slipped 'please help' notes to customers through the machine.

The contractor reportedly went to a closed Bank of America in Corpus Christi Wednesday afternoon to fix a door lock. He ended up being locked inside.

When customers stopped by to get money from the ATM, the contractor began slipping them notes through the receipt slot. 

One note read, “Please help. I’m stuck in here, and i don’t have my phone. Please call my boss."

Most people thought the notes were a joke but one person actually took it seriously after hearing his faint voice coming from inside the machine. That person called 911.

Officers initially thought it was a joke as well. They quickly learned it was true and kicked down the door to rescue the contractor.
