Man Behind an ATM – level 2

10-08-2021 15:00

A man in Texas was working behind an ATM when he got stuck inside it.

His phone was in his car so he could not call for help. He slipped notes to customers asking them for help. Most people thought that this was a joke, but one person called the police.

The police came and could hear ‘a little voice coming from the machine’. One officer kicked down a door and saved the man.

Difficult words: ATM (a machine which gives you cash), stuck (not able to get out), slip (put through the machine).

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