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.

      I had to share oxygen with 7 ppl! Breathe slower also no use 🙁

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

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

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Indeed! 15 mins is very good ady!

    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.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Unfortunately, bf stays at level 23 LOL!!

    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.
