Xi'an - Wonan trapped in lift for weeks found dead

Postby tankee » Mon Mar 07, 2016 5:23 pm

Two Chinese maintenance workers face charges in the death of a woman trapped in an elevator for a month, authorities in western China said.

Government officials in China's Gaoling district told the Beijing Times the woman might have starved to death.

The elevator apparently became stuck between the 10th and 11th floors of a building in the city of Xian on Jan. 30, the Times said. Service men called to deal with the broken cable banged on the door, but when they heard no response they cut off power to the elevator and told residents to use a different lift, the officials said.

When the servicemen returned to fix the cable last week, they opened the elevator door and found the woman's body.

Her hands were distorted… there were scratches on the wall, it was horrible,” a building resident told the Times.....

So pitiful to die like this. She must have been suffocated and starved to death.

The workers who didn't do a good job checking if the lifts were vacant should be taken to court. The victim must have been highly decomposed.

one wonders what the building occupants are doing when they hear sound coming from the other lift when that lady was alive.

The building was totally vacant during the extended CNY holiday period
