A Repairman Stuck Behind an ATM Slips a Note Through the Receipt Slot to get Help

A repairman in Corpus Christie, Texas got locked in a room behind an ATM on Wednesday, and started passing notes through the receipt slot that said, "Please help.  I'm STUCK in here."  A few people thought it was a prank.  But someone finally took it seriously, and cops had to knock the door down to rescue him.
