Quest Crew Hot Boxes a Broken Elevator

It's a claustrophobic person's worst nightmare: Ten boisterous dancers trapped in a broken elevator -- with no airflow ... and no way out!

That's exactly what happened to the members of Quest Crew -- winners of "America's Best Dance Crew" -- when they piled into a janky elevator at San Diego State University last week.

The dancers recorded from inside the box -- they were stuck for over an hour -- the heat and the tensions mounting throughout the entire ordeal. Fast forward to the 10-minute mark to see their triumphant escape.
