Man Behind an ATM – level 1

10-08-2021 15:00

A man is working behind an ATM. He gets stuck. His phone is in his car. He cannot call for help. This happens in Texas.

The man has a pen and some paper. He writes notes and pushes them through the machine. People read the notes. Most people think that this is a joke, but one person calls the police.

The police come. They hear the man. One officer kicks down a door. He saves the man.

Difficult words: ATM (a machine which gives you cash), stuck (not able to get out), note (some text on a piece of paper).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
