1. This happened in a building in Bustamante Park, Chile, on Friday.
The man, José Vergara Acevedo, 31, suffered head and leg injuries and was rescued by firefighters, according to Emol Chile.
While most of us fear a lift plummeting down, in this case it malfunctioned and picked up speeds of 80 kph as it rose 31 floors in 15 seconds. To Acevedo’s horror, pressing the buttons only caused the doors to open, revealing how fast the lift was travelling.
The building was finished just eight months ago, according to Infonews.
