Have you ever get stuck and trapped in a lift? It’s my first time today. And I’m still stuck while writing this. Instead of waiting aimlessly, I decided to write about this experience.

While the lift was heading to the car park at level 2, the lift suddenly went to level 4 after stopping at level 3. Then the indicator showed that we’re at level 1. When I thought never mind la just go out at level 1, the lift ‘shuddered’ and stopped. “Oh shit” was my first thought. There’s no line on our phones so we couldn’t call anyone! So hopeless! The only thing we can do is press the emergency button. The oxygen level is getting lesser and lesser! I normally will faint in this condition! Helpppp~~~~~ I can feel that my heart is beating slower and slower… T.T

If only our smartphones can blow air out…

DAFUQ. The person from Eita Elevators only came after an hour.

  • Where? At some shopping mall? Can call for help…since you have your smartphone with you.

  • HAHAHAHA. So random the last line. XD Well you're safe now. Next time dun panic then you'll breathe slower.

    • LOL randomness is fun!
      I had to share oxygen with 7 ppl! Breathe slower also no use 🙁

  • o.o I've never experience this before. You scared of close space?

    • Not really but I cannot be in crowded places… feels like lack of oxygen :/

  • OMG!! It must be a horrible experience!! Luckily you managed to keep sane, cos I cant stay in such an enclosed area for one hour!!!

  • You write this while inside the lift? You mean no line but got wifi??

    • I saved it in Evernote first then when I got out only publish XD

  • Have you watched the movie Devil?

    Haha! Kidding, kidding.

    I've been stuck in a lift many times but never for an hour!

    That's a really long time, sorry to hear that…

    • LOL many friends mentioned this movie but I've never watch it before :p

  • Hoho I don't wish for this to ever happened to me. I get really freak out in situation like that.

  • HAHAHA1! good to hear that u r fine! I will definitely freak out if im in ur situation

  • Touch wood, not yet. It's the stuff of nightmares.

  • i cannot imagine ><.. yup and I watched the movie Devil before :P..

  • so dangerous!!!

  • What the heck! Its crazy scary. Was stuck before myself…with 3 other persons. Wanted to cry…but seeing the very preggie lady about to tear herself and threatening to deliver in the lift…i had to hold back. and only teared when they opened the door…15 minutes luckily!

  • our lifts here have been wonky for some time. so now i avoid taking lift if i am alone, use stairs instead since i am not staying too high up.

  • I got stucked in hospital lift before. But they are quite efficient, only 15 minutes.. hehe

  • All elevator companies will tell you they will come immediately. Sometimes, you can get stuck for more than 45 minutes. In one case, the call center only got the phone call after one-and-a-half hour later.
