Let me start out by saying that I have a fear of elevators.  It doesn't matter where I go or what building I'm in, all I know is when I see an elevator, it's panic time for me.

According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, police say a woman was rescued after being stuck for three days in the private elevator of a Manhattan townhouse.

My question is, how did this woman stay calm?   I would have freaked out or passed out. Can't even imagine being stuck in an elevator for just one day let alone three days.

A police spokesman says the 53 year old woman was in stable condition Monday at a local hospital.  Firefighters freed the woman after forcing entry into the elevator.  The cause of the elevator mishap is under investigation.

Now that I have posted this story about the woman trapped inside the elevator for three days, my goal is to get more exercise by taking the steps and staying away from all elevators.  Thinking about this just gives me the creeps!
