    Re: Man trapped in elevator.

    Well, when I meant fragile I wasn't just talking about him but humans in general. Compare to getting lost in the wild, I would say that trapped in an elevator isn't much. Besides he already gone crazy within hours, he did not actually hold out for 42 hours. Anyways, I would have liked to read about what happened to all those securities that were on shift for that weekend while White was trapped.

    Re: Man trapped in elevator.

    Interesting little (o.O) story there. Looked to me like there were a few flaws in their system, security missing the alarm, maintainance skipping that elevator, perhaps a couple of other things. Still, it was 10 years ago, safety is always improving.

    I'm not surprised his mind started playing tricks on him. hours on end with only the alarm to provide outside stimulation. I dare say I'd go a little kooky myself, but then again, I'm already a bit crazy. I'd find a way to entertain myself, though they'd possibly earn the company a few dents in the walls. For some reason, I tend to punch walls at times, not to threaten anyone though, just as a random act...

    Wish I could get on here more often. *Sigh* The down side to night shift...

    well... I see that as a kind of revenge from what he had gone through....

    But still... at least they should have wondered... even if he was "just a colleague." In all reality, one spend more time with colleagues than with oneself's family....

He felt a change in the breeze, which suggested that the elevator was moving."
    What do you mean before long??? they got there after 41 HOURS!!!! you call that before long? I call before long 30min to 2hours the most

And even worse: IT WAS SECURITY'S JOB TO CHECK THE CAMERAS.
    Yeah, those guys suck.
    yup I blame maintenance and security as well... oh men now I feel mooore trust fro those who work in security... I mean as you say they were supposed to check the security cameras... where were them?? eating donouts?!?!?

    I would be extreamly mad if I was White! How in the world could the security guards not see him! If they were really looking, they should've seen him. I think he reacted really well under the circumstances!

    oops...they saw us...*to you* Hi...you didn't just see that...

    It's a really long time and that security guard should have gone to court, for two reasons.

    1. Not doing his job,
    2. If he did notice and he left him that is against the law i think??? well yeah he should have been nicked for a little while or at least fired!

    i would have been so bored and thirsty and so hungry, wow i can't belive that no one noticed!!!

    yeah, i would totally starve to death. i mean, its easy to find food in the wilderness. however, in a barren wasteland that is an elevator, i think the only thing to eat would be the nasty carpet.

    maybe every time i go in an elevator i will bring a bag of beef jerkey and a bottle of water

    haha, i'm determined to NOT use an elevator, i never have liked the things but this tops it off, i hear about trapping and well quiete frankly i'll use the stiars, safer unless you fall and break your neck but highely unlikely i belive! and it's greta excersise for you, i think after a tramatic situation like this one, i would doubt he'd use another elevator in a hurry, especially in the building he was lets say "abbandend" in.
