CAREFUL! Everything you need to do when the elevator gets stuck! Here's how you can escape

One of the worst nightmares is getting stuck in an elevator. In such an unexpected situation, it is important to be prepared. Below we bring you some important tips on how to behave if the elevator gets stuck and how to get out of it if necessary. Keep calm! In an emergency situation, panic can be far more devastating than the disaster itself. Try to breathe normally and don't panic!
Take a deep breath and calm your heartbeat. Ask for help! Before doing anything, try to ask for help using the button marked with a bell. However, if the electricity does not work, this may not be an option. Let other people know you're stuck by making as much noise as possible. Take a shoe and bang on the metal parts of the elevator door.
Find a light source! If there is no electricity, try to find a light source, you can calm the panic and it will help you to see the buttons. Use your phone's flash light. If you have a flashlight, you can use that too. Do not use a lighter as it is not only dangerous but will use up the oxygen you need. Call the reception! If the call button does not work, do not rush to escape. First, try calling the front desk or the emergency number. The number can be found on the walls of the elevator or on the button board.
Try all the buttons to open the door. If the elevator is stuck on one of the floors and it just opens, don't keep pushing the button for the floor you wanted to go to before. Try to press the button of the floor you are stuck on. If that doesn't work, try the button that opens the door. Be patient! If someone is coming to pick you up, try to talk to someone, make a phone call, play games on your smartphone.
Press the "Stop" button! If it's stuck, pull it out and press it again. Make a rescue plan! First of all, make sure that the elevator is not between floors or in any other difficult position. Try to open the elevator doors. Recheck the elevator position. Pull the switch while keeping the door down and then open the door. Get out of the elevator and help the other trapped people.
