Most people who have a fear of heights have more than likely had a nightmare about getting caught in a broken elevator at one point or another!
Well this guy had that horrific scenario come to life! But instead of the lift free-falling and plunging dozens of stories, it actually flew UP before it eventually crashed into the roof!
31-year-old José Vergara Acevedo entered the elevator on the first floor of his building in Providencia, Chile, and surveillance cameras captured the whole ride on tape!
The footage shows the elevator beginning to rise before the doors even close! José then panics and scrambles to push as many buttons as possible, but all that does is open the doors!
The lift rose a total of 31 floors in a span of 15 seconds before it eventually crashed into the roof, where José suffered serious injuries to his legs and his head. The building where the horrific incident took place is merely 8 months old and is currently under investigation.
All we know is next time we think we'll be taking the stairs instead!
Ch-ch-check out the surveillance video (below)!
