    I'm looking for a good verb.

    "I was closed in an elevator for over five hours, when electricity went out." I guess "closed" is wrong. Is there any good verb for here?

    Hello Peppy_man,

    I believe 'trapped' is the word you're looking for in the given context.

    All the best

    Tomasz Klimkiewicz, thank you!
    How about 'I was stuck in an elevator'?
    I found this a few hours after my my first post.
    Does this mean the same?
