TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)--  If you already have a fear of elevators, this story may scare you even more. A man in Chile was injured when the elevator he was in malfunctioned, and soared up 31 floors in just 15 seconds. He desperately pushed buttons to try to stop it, but it didn't help. The elevator eventually slammed into the ceiling. Emergency crews were eventually able to rescue the man. He suffered serious head and leg injuries.
