Man Trapped In Elevator For 41 Hours

When Nicholas White went out for a cigarette break one day in 1999, he never imagined he'd end up trapped in an elevator at work for 41 hours. But that's exactly what happened. White, who tried prying open the doors and using the elevator's emergency call button to get help, remained stuck for an entire weekend without food, water or even a cell phone. All he had were some cigarettes and antacids, which he was too afraid to eat because he feared dehydration.

Now the security tapes from those days have been released, and they tell quite a story. To watch this story, click on the link to the left titled 'Man Trapped In Elevator For 41 Hours'.
