DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. After hearing this, visiting the ATM may never be the same. So people were using a cash machine in Texas when something weird came out of the receipt slot. It was a note that said, please help. I'm stuck in here, and I don't have my phone. Please call my boss. There was a number. Finally, someone called. And a man stuck inside the ATM was rescued.
