Crews had trouble releasing the elevator, which was stuck between the 21st and 22nd floor, so they had to rescue him from another elevator parallel to the one that was stalled, said Gubricky.

Once firefighters placed the man on the second elevator, that one also became stuck.

After more than three hours, they all made it back down safely.
