Isn’t there a button in most elevators to notify the Fire department in the case of something like this?

And I thought it was bad when my spouse was trapped for a couple of hours in one. Edit: My spouse just reminded me that the emergency button did not work. Someone waiting outside for the elevator shouted and found out the elevator was occupied. They went and got help.

There's that button, usually red, that you need to press in case of an emergency. I even remember some elevators have intercoms. Well, good thing she's safe.

I bet she had ripped clothing up her nose as she tried hopelessly to get away from the growing pile of plop in the corner,, lucky they got her out, eventually she'd have drowned.
