Want to have nightmares? Watch this video of people stuck in a subway elevator
There's nothing to be scared of, just the possibility of being stuck underground four hours with dozens of other people.
Here at Metro, we are so claustrophobic that we can't even ride on the 4-5-6 during rush hour without having a panic attack, so we have no idea how 28 people survived being stuck in a subway elevator without one of them freaking out and murdering everybody.
The unfortunate subway riders were trapped in the elevator at the 1 train station at 181st street. Last year, a stalled elevator at the 181st street station on the A line trapped a woman and her husband for three hours. Both stations are very deep underground and have very problematic elevators:
Last year, Metro revealed the worst elevators in the city:
»Elevator No. 183 at Gun Hill Road on the 2/5: Trapped people seven times so far in 2010
»Elevator No. 192 at 233rd Street on the 2/5: Trapped people five times in 2010
»Elevator No. 110 at 181st Street on the 1: Trapped people five times in 2010
»Elevator No. 277 at Columbus Circle: Trapped people five times
»Elevator No. 320 at Church Avenue on the 2/5: Trapped people three times in 2010 (via New York Post)
