SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD (Reuters) - A retiree and former elevator repair man had to survive on just a packet of crackers while he was stuck in a broken hospital elevator for three days.
The man, who had turned up for a routine appointment at a local hospital, slipped out of his wheelchair during the 80-hour ordeal in which he repeatedly pushed the elevator's alarm button without anyone hearing his call for help.
"I was lying on the floor and the elevator went up and down for a bit. I pushed the alarm button several times, but nothing happened," the man was quoted as saying. "I thought to myself, ‘That's it. You're on your own now'."
The victim, who appeared on television looking pale and weak, was finally discovered Monday after a nurse reported the broken elevator. His son had launched a hunt for his father but rescue workers after scouring the hospital grounds had concentrated efforts on dredging a nearby waterway.
This was a hospital. He pushed the freakin' alarm button. Man, I hope I'm never in a hospital that negligent!
