Downtown nightmare: Large group trapped in elevator for hours

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Imagine being trapped inside an elevator for hours, with only limited communication to the outside – more than a dozen people said they were stuck in that kind of nightmare at a downtown condo building overnight.

Rescue crews worked for three hours to free the individuals trapped in the elevator. One individual told FOX 32 News that they had trouble contacting the elevator company to let them know they needed help.

The building at 60 E Monroe houses a combination of businesses, condos and office space.

Officials said the group was visiting one of the condos and when they began their descent, the elevator got stuck. It seems the weight of the group may have caused the elevator to malfunction.

No reports of any injuries, but their limited tweets showed their fear and frustration.
