Elevator safety: If you are stuck in an elevator between floors, and building security or staff gets the doors open for you, and reaches their hand out to pull you up and out, or down and out, don’t do it. Modern elevators will not suddenly fall to the ground, but they will resume function and move at a normal speed to the closest floor. If you are between the elevator car and the doorway at the time the elevator starts to resume its travel, you may be seriously injured or worse.
