Tower of Terror: Actor Josh Charles & Others Survive 8 Floor Elevator Plunge
The Good Wife actor Josh Charles and director David M. Rosenthal survived a terrifying eight floor elevator plunge in New York City's Gramercy Hotel! It seems a group of people including the actor and director had been attending the premiere of the new film Janie Jones in the Big Apple when a very large man and his girlfriend attempted to squeeze into the elevator already occupied by Charles, Rosenthal and at least ten other people. Apparently, the extra weight was too much of a strain on the elevator, causing it to free fall eight stories down the shaft with the doors still open! The elevator stopped before reaching the bottom floor. Luckily, no one was injured in the unscheduled plummet, but I imagine the group will be taking the stairs for the foreseeable future!
