China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

More than 10 peo­ple be­came trapped in an el­e­va­tor in Xi’an af­ter it plum­meted nearly 20 floors and they were un­able to con­tact the of­fice build­ing’s man­age­ment. The in­ci­dent oc­curred at noon on Oct 31 af­ter the peo­ple en­tered the el­e­va­tor on the build­ing’s 21st floor. Re­peated calls to the build­ing’s man­age­ment went unan­swered, so they called the fire hot­line 119 and were res­cued by fire­fight­ers 20 min­utes later. The build­ing man­ager later apol­o­gized and said his staff were out at lunch at the time.
