Corpus Christi police said the unnamed man was a contractor who became stuck in the ATM room at the bank while changing the locks. He had left his phone in his vehicle and had no way to communicate his predicament.
When people approached the ATM he slipped notes through the slots.
“Please Help, I’m stuck in here, and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss.”
Customers thought it was a prank, so the man remained inside for several hours longer.
