Woman With Hand Stuck In ATM Freed By Firemen

ATMs are no longer satisfied with just nipping fees from you. Now they want your flesh.

WPXI reports local fire fighters had to use special equipment to free the hand of a Pennsylvania woman who reached in an ATM to get her money but the machine wouldn’t let her hand go. Officials at First Commonwealth bank, where the ATM was located, said they were just glad she wasn’t injured at all.

In other news, safety experts announced you should get your money out of the ATM with your fingers rather than cramming your whole fist in.
