What do you do when you get stuck in an elevator? After the initial moment of panic, you try calling someone to get you out. And then? You’re stuck all by yourself, with nothing to do but wait. So you count the seconds, which slowly turn to minutes, which even more slowly turn to hours. Meanwhile, you are slowly dying. Of boredom. Unless of course, you have an incredible sense of humor and your wit is more than enough to keep you, and thousands of strangers on the Internet, entertained.
Which is exactly what happened to medical student Joseph. It was his first day of surgery, and he got trapped in an elevator. But he got lucky, because his phone was fully charged, and he was able to create the most hilarious survival log of all time. He documented his experience by uploading Snapchats during the whole 60-minutes of being stuck in a little box. The Internet salutes you, you brave soul!
While enduring this trial, Joseph faced many different challenges, and he successfully overcame them all! He kept himself alive by staving off hunger, fashioning armor from what resources lay at hand, defending himself from the enemies, and making friends with the local wildlife. Robinson Crusoe and Chuck Noland (Cast Away) have got nothing on this guy! Check out what a thrilling ride he’s had!
