PROVIDENCIA, Chile – A man has been seriously injured in Chile when the elevator he was in malfunctioned and rose 30 floors in 15 seconds, according a report on TVNZ.

Video posted on YouTube on Friday showed the 31-year-old man enter the elevator and press a button to go up. But it appears before the man even presses the button, the elevator doors close and the elevator begins to rapidly ascend.

The video cuts out as the elevator reportedly smashed through the roof, causing the 31-year-old to sustain head and leg injuries, according to the report.
