I can't embed the video unfortunately, but this link has a video of a guy trapped in an elevator for 41 hours. They sped it up so you can see it in its entirety.
I would be insane by the end, and would definitely smell terrible. Also, knowing that there are cameras would restrict some things I would do :evil:.
Pretty crazy that there was a camera and this was a huge, busy office building, and yet the guy was still in there for 41 hours.

Why the **** does he keep checking the door for? Does he expect it to look different?

At one point, it appears that he gave his wallet a really good cleaning and organizing.

How on earth did it go on that long? I presume that there's no security at all in that building?

I think he's opening it and yelling out for help.

Weird how they appear to work on each of the other three elevators but ignore the one with the "hostage." I would assume this must have happened over a weekend since the other elevators are not in service.

Hopefully I have my ball and glove, and can spend the time emulating Hilts, the "Cooler King".

Reading the article, it seems this happened at 11pm on a Friday night. SO I guess I can see how no one would notice on the monitors. It's interesting that the maintenance guys never noticed one elevator wasn't coming to work on... but again... how would they know someone was in there?


All I know is that would suck, and I'd be freaked out like you wouldn't believe.

wait. don't all elevators have the 'emergency call' button? cause, like, he's an idiot if he didn't push it.

After spending 12 hours in a drunk tank, I can't imagine spending 3.5 times that amount in a goddamned elevator.

i could not tell because of the fast-paced video, but did he at any point during these 41 hours go pee?

It says he set off an alarm at some point, and kept it going for quite a while, but it was clear no one was hearing it and he was afraid it would start a fire...

I wondered the same thing. The article doesn't say. From the looks of the video, maybe he just peed himself.

I would poop all over the floors as punishment to all the people who did nothing to help me.

My wife spent half an hour stuck in an elevator with two other people a few weeks ago. It's not quite as bad as 41 hours, but at some point you wouldn't want to be with other people.

I figure he pissed down the elevator shaft when he forced the doors open.

Too bad the hot office secretary wasn't on that elevator ride with him when it shot craps. That security video would have been a whole let better to watch..

If I had something to occupy my time such as a book it wouldn't be that bad but if not I would start to lose it quickly. I would imagine that after more than 10 hours or so I would likely start devising some absurd plan to climb up to the next floor to get my ass out of there.

This happened quite a while ago, if I remember correctly. Apparently the aftermath completely derailed his life. He didn't go back to work because his lawyers advised him that it would hurt his lawsuit, lost his job, then the suit dragged on for four years before he settled for something in the low six-figures. He had trouble finding another job and lost his apartment.

1 minute in I would use my cell phone..... problem solved.

If it wouldnt work: 5 minutes into it my adhd would start to really eat at me... 10 minutes in I would be furious.... 15 minutes in I would be apathetic and think it was a joke....45 minutes in I would climb the **** out the top of it.

ROFL OH MY GOD!!!! I am at work with no sound and I have no clue if that has sound, but without it, it is still ****ing great! His facial expressions are so good! then when he is pantless with his ass out the door and wiggling around..... ****ing hilarious.... pounding on the door backwards... then the hide camera/masturbate move was priceless.... I bet 75% of the board would do the same thing... I know I would.
