Dumb And Dumber Ride The Waves In An Elevator
Two men almost drown by taking elevator into flooded basement
Not the actual elevator>>>
Two workmen on Staten Island nearly drowned when they took an elevator down into a basement flooded by heavy rains that inundated the New York area over the weekend
The pair tried to move construction materials down to the lowest floor, without first determining that water in the basement was rising.
One of the men told reporters he thought they were dead.
In water up to their waists, the men managed to hold a cellphone through a ceiling hatch to get a strong enough signal to call 911.
By the time fire rescuers arrived, the water was up to their necks.
They finally escaped to safety on a ladder firefighters pushed into the flooded elevator car.
