This iReport is part of an assignment:
Did you feel the quake?
Trapped in an elevator with my daughter
It was truly a crazy experience as my 5-year old daughter and I got caught on an elevator right as the earthquake started. It started shaking incessantly and the doors were opening and closing and then finally got stuck. Minutes later I started pressing down and it went down. We rushed out the elevator to find everyone evacuating Georgetown Hospital where we were. The videos here are of the area where I was trying to go get my 3-year old daughter (celebrating her bithday today) and of me returning to my office at home, where I found that my iReport Spirit Award had been knocked down!!! Not cool! In all seriousness though, it really puts things in perspective. I hope no one died or was seriously hurt.
