In November 2018, for instance, the elevator cables in Chicago’s John Hancock Center snapped and sent the carriage plunging down a staggering 84 floors – with six terrified people inside. Yet if you ever find yourself in a similarly unthinkable position, there are some methods you could implement that just might save your life.
