It's amazing the amount of strength you get when breaking something apart due to frustration.

A woman in Changchun, Jilin Province in China has been arrested by police after she ripped the ATM open to look for her card.

The woman, who has not been named, claimed that a similar machine had eaten her card two months prior to this incident.

In a distressed state, the woman tore off the front cover and went at it to try and find her card.

Police were on the scene in approximately ten minutes and took the woman into custody.

She's now been sent to a mental facility for a psychiatric evaluation.

Staff at the bank said they were surprised that anyone would be able to open the machine with their bare hands.
