After a few kids got stuck in an elevator at a Royalton hotel, their family became increasingly alarmed. Their initial reaction was to try to pry the elevator doors shut, and when that was ineffective, the family began frantically ascending stairs to set off fire alarms and try opening additional elevator doors.
Some of the family members also expressed their feelings of anxiety by verbally attacking the hotel staff, who were waiting quietly for trained technicians to arrive and resolve the situation safely.
