Man Gets Trapped In Freak Elevator Accident, Crushing Him

A elevator worker has had a lucky escape after a freak accident left him crushed between two floors.

The unnamed man was reportedly fixing the lift in Chongqing Municipality's Wulong District in south-west China when the machinery malfunctioned and shot straight up.

According to Asia Wire, the worker was dragged into the mechanics and became trapped between the lift car and the lift shaft, tightly wedged in between floors.


Rescue workers rushed to free the man, whose lower body was crushed by the incident and who can be seen losing consciousness during the terrifying incident.

Miraculously, he's expected to survive his jaw-dropping ordeal.

If you can stomach it, you can watch the whole, nightmarish scene unfold here but be warned, it's not easy viewing.
