Have you ever been trapped in an elevator?

It happened to me last week when I was in an elevator alone in the company from 11th floor to 1st.Then suddenly the elevator stopped when it was on 10th and 9th, I found the power was off for this old elevator.It was the first time I got trapped in an elevator. At that time, many situations showed in movies that elevator being out of control and falling down on the ground suddenly filled in my mind. I was a bit scared of being dropped down and died.What was worse, I could do nothing inside this little box and nobody knew there was a person in it. I shouted out,no answer received. I felt terrible but tried to calm down, at once I remembered my cell phone was in my pocket,then I quickly called to my college Subinna. To my surprise, She laughed out unsympathetically and said:"don't worry,my dear!Just have a good rest and now nobody will disturb you." Although I felt she is cold blooded,yet I felt easy in my mind now.Then Subinna helped to inform people and I was rescued 30 minutes later. It was just a small accident but I think it's very interesting and worthwhile. When you met with an accident like that, what would you think of do something to save yourself?

Yes, I was ever trapped alone in the passenger lift at my workplace before. I wasn't scared though. And I didn't worry about the lift falling down to the ground floor, as the lift is regularly maintained by the Facilities department. Luckily my mobile phone came equipped with a torch, so what I did was I shone the light on the Facilities telephone number in the lift, dialed the number, and was rescued in about 15 minutes.
