Remember not to dash in the lift when the door is open.

Apparently, over my workplace today, someone fallen from either 2nd floor or 1st floor to B1 though the lift is on 3rd floor! The lift is under servicing at that point of time and this man pressed for lift. The lift door suddenly opened and the guy just walk 'in' even though the lift isnt there!

He is seriously injured from that fall as I saw his shirt covered with blood. As he landed on the B1, the SCDF had hard time to pull him up from the lift ground out to the floor. His mom who is very old been crying non stop when such situation happen. Quite sad to see such situation.

Now, I don't think the comedy which crank joke about nothing behind the door is funny. Its painful.

Just sharing with all my fellow clubsnappers here.

Dashing in and dashing out. Dashing to trains and dashing to buses.

Why can't we all slow down our paces for a minute? :)

actually the contractor is not at fault also unless they did not put a blockage of a warning ... if the door was to be close, they would not hav mayb fresh air and other thing they need....

felt sorry for the man, but is 3hrs too long to save him out of it?

Scary... thought this is the stuff of urban legends but it DOES happen!

I think I will now also not stand right in front of the lift door waiting for it to open, especially when there's a crowd behind me. Sekali it opens with no lift in it and the mad crowd behind me accidentally pushes me down the empty lift well when trying to squeeze through to get into a lift that's not there... :bigeyes:

Yep.
It is hard to believe that someone actually walks into a lift without looking.

Thank God it is only 1 floor apart.
Can't imagine if the office is at 10th storey.

Hm...really unfortunate for him......but come think of it.....accident like this happens all the time and really surprise that no one come up with any failed safe feature for modern lift design.....I do occationally instinctively walk into a lift without much looking.....sometimes distracted by phone conversation or thinking of other thing while walking :sweat:

Very true. Two days ago in the morning on the MRT I just saw a lady deep in thought as she got up from her seat and walked to the door. I lifted my finger and pointed to left. She saw me, but still did not get my idea. Then she suddenly woke up from her 'trance' and rushed out before the train door closed. She was facing the wrong side of the train which doesn't open. :confused: Well, a few commuters did chuckle.
