Wow, this must have sucked. 81 hours in a broken express elevator with no food or water. According to the man he allegedly tried the call button a number of times and got a response a few but as he is Chinese there was a great language barrier. Of course, the management of the apartment said that was not the case and the first they were aware of him was the day before he was rescued when they say the first record of the alarm or call button shows up. There was a security camera in the elevator but it apparently doesn't record and just sends a live feed to monitors that are supposed to be, well, monitored. It's also apparent, based on other tenant responses, that the elevators in the apartment building are notorious for their many problems.
