There is a story in the April 21st issue of the New Yorker about elevators which you can read here. The story features a man named Nicholas White who was trapped in an elevator for 41 hours. The New Yorker has posted the video of the man's 41 hours in the elevator, time-lapsed so that the video takes three minutes and ten seconds. As the New Yorker article explains, these 41 hours changed Nicholas White's life forever.
I will warn you that it is difficult to watch. (The embedded YouTube video that follows is the same as the linked one above. I found the YouTube version loaded easier and was smoother than the New Yorker version.)
