At that moment, they played down that strange noise, however, when they went to the elevator, they realized that something was happening and they heard a creak again, but louder. Suddenly they saw smoke and many people screaming and running towards the exit. Although they had no idea what was happening, Gimena and Nicolás followed their neighbors and went straight to the exit.
