3 teen girls amazingly escape from being crushed under school elevator:

Lunch at Classen School of Advanced Studies went from curiosity to life-threatening when three female students became trapped underneath an elevator.

The girls reportedly went into the elevator shaft to see if they could open the doors from inside, but while trying to leave, they accidentally hit the elevator call button, causing the lift to descend down over them. In a desperate attempt, one of the girls wedged her boot in between the elevator and the ground, allowing the girls just 8 inches of space. Frantically, they called 911.

Through their screams, the dispatcher was able to determine what had happened, and rescuers got the girls out in about half an hour.
