Accident in elevator riddle


You are in an elevator with two other people. When it reaches the first floor, one person gets out and six get in. When it reaches the second floor, three people get out and twelve get in. At the third floor, five leave and nine enter. It rises to the fourth floor, one person gets on and the doors close. Suddenly, the elevator cable snaps and the car smashes to the ground. No one survives the fall, yet you are alive and know exactly how many people go on and off the elevator at every floor.

How is this possible?

    I got off at the first floor.

    I’m a security guard and knew how many people got on and off the elevator by watching the surveillance footage.
