Horrifying video shows man trapped in elevator skyrocketing 31 floors in 15 seconds

Talk about the true tower of terror.

A video uploaded over the weekend to YouTube shows a man trapped inside a malfunctioning elevator that skyrockets more than 30 floors in 15 seconds before crashing into the building's roof.

The surveillance footage, which was taken from a building in Chile, shows the panicked man hitting the elevator's buttons in an attempt to stop the out-of-control lift. He sustained head and leg injuries from the accident.

The building opened less than a year ago, and it's not yet known what caused the elevator to malfunction. --Jordan Valinsky
