Stuck in PD el­e­va­tor

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A MAN hol­i­day­ing in Port Dou­glas was stuck in a lift for half an hour on Fri­day. The man, from Ade­laide, was stay­ing at the Merid­ian, on David­son Street, when the power failed due to a fire in an elec­tri­cal junc­tion box in a build­ing over the road. The fire bri­gade went to the junc­tion box in­ci­dent and even­tu­ally power was re­stored by Er­gon – who are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the fire. PD am­bu­lance of­fi­cers also at­tended the Merid­ian while the man was caught in the lift. ‘‘We were able to talk to him all the time,’’ said of­fi­cer-in-charge Ian Day. ‘‘He was OK about it all.’’ Of course these el­e­va­tor in­ci­dents are rare in Port Dou­glas, but Mr Day re­marked that ‘‘you’d be sur­prised how many lifts there are in the town’’.
