Rescue After 40 Minutes Trapped in an Elevator

California Federation of Teachers Convention, Oakland Marriott, Elevator #4, 20th Floor, 4/11/08

51 seconds, recorded by John Govsky

After 40 minutes of being stuck in an elevator with 11 other teachers, I realized my trusty cheapo digital camera could shoot video. I started recording just in time to capture our heroic rescue by the Oakland Fire Department. After you hear the comments "we need a stick … or a crowbar," watch how everyone actually starts looking around for a stick or a crowbar in the elevator!
