Trapped In An Elevator For 41 Hours (The Video)

Check this amazing video. Imagine your in an elevator & it suddenly stops, your trapped & cannot do anything at all. Can you imagine the claustrophobic feeling, the desperation & the anxiety? It must have been a living nightmare & to freak-out : 41 HOURS. Read the summary of what happenned below taken from "Live Leak":

"Nicholas White was a thirty-four-year-old production manager at Business Week. He was working late on a special assignment and wanted a cigarette. He told a colleague that he’d be right back and, leaving his jacket behind, headed downstairs. Thus commenced the longest smoke break of Nicholas White’s life, a harrowing experience that began at around eleven o’clock on a Friday night in October, 1999.

The Business Week offices were located on the forty-third floor of the McGraw-Hill Building in mid-town Manhattan. When White finished his cigarette, he returned to the lobby, got into Car No. 30 and pressed the button marked 43. The car accelerated. It was an express elevator, with no stops below the thirty-ninth floor, and the building was deserted. But after a moment, White felt a jolt. The lights went out, immediately flashed on again and then the elevator stopped" (
