In DOOM E1M3 (Toxin Refinery) there is a radioactive waste pit at the start,

radioactive waste at start

and a couple in the middle (just before you get the blue keycard).

radioactive pits in middle

My question is; if you fall into these pits, is it possible to get out? Like through a secret lift or something? (though the "Official" DOOM FAQ v6.666 doesn't say anything about that in the secrets section)
Thanks!

There is always the no clipping cheat which will climb out. –  Alastair Jun 16 '11 at 11:57

For the first area:

Nope, you're dead if you fall.

For the second area:

If you fall into the center, then yes, you can get out. There is a switch at the bottom you can hit to raise the whole platform. IIRC, it also has a large health pack in the center of it.

If you fall off into the sides however, there is no way to get out other than death.

Perhaps my memory is making me second guess, but I thought there was a radioactive waste pit that rose if you hit space on one of the sides. Could have easily been another map.. –  Neil Jun 16 '11 at 8:07
    
well, there is a platform and a switch out of the toxic in the middle pit that rises if you push it. (there's also a medkit... that comes in handy sometimes :) –  Nate Koppenhaver Jun 18 '11 at 0:41
