Timelapse video of Nicholas White trapped for 41 hours in elevator at the McGraw Hill Building in NYC

On Friday, October 15, 1999 at 11pm in the McGraw Hill Building in NYC, Nicholas White took a cigarette break. White heads back upstairs in Elevator Car #30 but something went wrong and 41 hours later, he finally exits the elevator! He had no cell phone, no watch, no water, or food. He was able to open the elevator doors to face solid wall but at least that allowed him to urinate down the elevator shaft.

ABC News has the exclusive story.
