Two Uzbekistani students were tired but unhurt after being trapped in an elevator for two hours.

Rescuers were called to the Aungked Condominium on Soi Boonkanchanaram 8 Jan. 18 where Amirbek Alimov, 17, and Mariya Mikhaylova, 20, were stuck between floors.

Technicians pried open the doors, but could not raise the lift or widen it more than 10 centimeters.

Finally, a manual override of the electronic controls was done and the students were freed without injury.
