Trapped in an elevator for 41 hours

Today is in the middle of the 10th anniversary of the day that Nicholas White was trapped in an elevator car in New York City’s McGraw Hill building. This is a time lapse video of the ordeal as captured by the buildings security cameras. The story was first reported in the New Yorker Magazine, in an article by Nick Paumgarten in April of 2008. I have recently recounted this tale to a few friends, some of whom I doubt believed me. At any rate, now that it is the tenth anniversary of this unlucky staffer from Business Week’s trip to nowhere, I thought you all might want to view it. I also highly suggest reading the entire New Yorker article, which takes you through many other elevator stories through the years.
