MYTH - Some people believe that if an elevator is stuck between floors they are in danger of falling and should try to get out.
TRUTH - Attempting to leave the car on your own could result in serious injury or death. Elevator cars are designed to be "safe rooms", and the safest place is inside the car. You should ring the alarm and utilize the emergency telephone if the elevator is equipped with one. You should only leave the car with the assistance of professional rescue personnel.
