A CCTV footage showing a man getting his feet stuck between 2 floors in an elevator has gone viral on social media. It is said that the incident took place on the late night of 17 June at Flat Desa Pinang 2, Sungai Penang.
In a video posted on Kelab Info Malaysia Facebook page, it showed the elevator opening its doors and the man walking in.
However, the elevator started moving up even before the door is closed and the man accidentally tripped over the sudden movement.
While he was struggling to get up on his feet, the elevator continued moving upwards and eventually caused the man’s leg to be trapped between the door and the shaft of the building.
According to the Jalan Perak Fire and Rescue Department, investigations were conducted as soon as they arrive at the scene.
The team found that the elevator had indeed stopped and the man’s feet were stuck on the elevator’s door between the ground floor and the first floor. They then immediately begin operation to free the man.
In a post on the Department’s Facebook page, it shared several photos that showcased the firefighters prying open the elevator door using special equipment.
After about 30 minutes, the team successfully free the man’s feet and he was brought immediately to the hospital to receive further treatment by the JPK Emergency Medical Responses Services unit.
