(KTVI) - Imagine being stuck in a broken elevator.  That's what happened to one man in Chile, only this elevator wasn't standing still.

Everything seems normal when he stepped inside. But within seconds, the doors suddenly flew open and the floors could be seen flying by.

The terrified man frantically pressed button to stop the elevator as it shot up 30 floors in just 15 seconds.

It then smashed into the roof of the building.  The man suffered leg and head injuries.  There is no word on what caused the malfunction.
