Morris Rickle was stranded in this elevator for 16 hours. Morris always carried a backpack with a few supplies just in case something like this happened. A little food, water, a light blanket and matches.
As near as the authorities can figure, somewhere around hour 14, Morris tried to roast some hotdogs and was overcome by smoke and then, evidently, became part of the roast. When the doors were finally opened, all the responders found was a piece of chared blanket and two hot dogs.
