Ever get stuck in an elevator?

4/22/2008:

I often hear minor calls on the Live Hoboken Police and Fire Scanner, where people sometimes get stuck in an elevator in town. A rig from the fire department usually gets them out very rapidly.

Even if you’ve been stuck for an hour or more, after watching this video, you’d appreciate not getting trapped for this long. (mind you, this was in 1999, and not everyone carried cell phones with them…)

LOL!
I got stuck in an elevator for about an hour at the WTC in the early 90’s. I’ll never forget when I pressed the emergency button and a technician responded, “OK, we’ll have someone right on it. Stay right there.”

Where else would I go?

[quote comment=”79258″]what was the horror flick with the haunted elevator?[/quote]

This is definitely not the one you mean, but “Lady in the Cage” was pretty hysterical. 1964 Olivia de Havilland, James Caan. The tagline was “Do not see “Lady in a Cage” alone!” lol

She lives in a mansion, and has an elevator. One day it gets stuck between floors so she rings the outside alarm to get help. These kids come by and decide to terrorize her since she’s stuck. 😈

My first job when i got out of the army was a elevator operator. The car stopped between floors and the lights went out,after everything came back on i went to the lobby and left and never looked back. It seemed like i was stuck for a 100 hours and i’m still not too keen about elevators.
