People trapped in a falling lift in the US city of Chicago thought they were going to die as they plummeted 84 floors to the ground.

Six people, including a pregnant woman, fell from the 95th to the 11th floor in a skyscraper formerly known as the John Hancock Center early on Friday morning.
They then texted friends who called the emergency services and they were freed after a three-hour ordeal.
It is believed at least one cable holding the cabin broke.
The group had left a bar on the 95th floor of the building to go down to the lobby.

Imagine that smell in that elevator. I guarantee you nobody was "smiling" in there when they opened the doors.

"It is still unclear how the lift came to a halt without hitting the ground. ABC TV quotes fire officials as saying two cables snapped but there were many others still attached."

IIRC, elevators have mechanical emergency brakes that activate if the lift electronics detect anomalous downward acceleration.

How dare they make buildings that tall! Its inhumane, ugly and highly dangerous.

I won't step foot in a building more than 3 stories because anything more than that is a crime against humanity and human beings have the right to land and houses, not apartments.

And offices should be in no more the 2-3 story buildings, though 2 is ample.


So happy they survived.

Ya, holy shit....I don't think I would ever step into another elevator after that ordeal.
