Betty Lou Oliver was an elevator attendant at the Empire State Building and she survived two major related accidents on the same day. First when a bomber hit the Empire State Building and then when the elevator that she was in, crashed 80 floors.
Betty Lou Oliver was working on the 80th story of the Empire State building on July 28, 1945. On that day, due to thick fog a B-25 Mitchell bomber crashed into the north side of the Empire State Building. The plane struck the 79th floor of the building and Oliver’s car was on the 80th floor.
