This HAS to be Germany ...

I was thinking along with TS' analysis. Besides, there are so few hospitals in the US that a broken elevator would be discovered promptly.

So few? In Lincoln, a town of 225,000, there are three LARGE hospitals and a heart center. Is this the exception, not the norm?

seems so to me ... i could be wrong. But whenever I read anything about hospitals in America these days, the story is the same ... understaffed, underfunded, overcrowded, etc.

Maybe it's just specific areas? :-?

And the answer is.... GERMANY!!!!



BERLIN (Reuters) - A German retiree and former elevator repair man had to survive on just a packet of biscuits while he was stuck in a broken hospital elevator for three days.

Karlheinz Schmidt, 68, who had turned up for a routine appointment at a Berlin 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 daily Bild quoted Schmidt as saying. "I thought to myself ... 'Karlheinz, that's it. You're on your own now'."

Schmidt, who appeared on German television looking pale and weak, was finally discovered Monday after a nurse reported the broken lift. Schmidt's son had launched a hunt for his father but rescue workers after scouring the hospital grounds had concentrated efforts on dredging a nearby canal.

Germany! Oh...too late to vote you say? What if I said I was from Florida, and never learned how to vote properly? Actually, I think I stumbled onto Knapp's treasure chest of stories, and knew the last couple right off so didn't play.
