Santiago, Chile - A man has been seriously injured after an out of control elevator in Chile shot up 31 flights in 15 seconds and crashed into the roof.

CCTV footage posted to YouTube, captures José Vergara Acevedo, 31, entering the lift in an unidentified building in Santiago last Friday evening.

At first the doors close but then they reopen as the elevator starts hurtling upwards at high-speed, causing Mr Acevedo to frantically press buttons on the control panel.
