Well, this is what it really feels like:
This poor man went for a smoke break and then became trapped in his elevator. Since he was working late on a Friday night, it was nearly two days before he was discovered.
It was all captured on the security cameras. Here we can watch him pace, sound the alarm repeatedly--even open the doors to relieve himself when natured called.
You also see people work on the other elevators, but apparently not notice his...
He had no watch, no cell phone, no food or water. His only sustenance was a pack of Rolaids.
"Rolaids aren't a very good meal," White said.
The the most difficult part of the ordeal, he said, was going 41 hours without water. At one point, White thought he might die of dehydration.
He relieved himself by opening the elevator doors a bit and urinating down the elevator shaft.
"I hoped that might be a signal to people in fact: 'why is the elevator leaking?'"
QUESTION: Have you ever been trapped in a similar situation? How did you deal?
