New tenant dies in­side el­e­va­tor

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A Filip­ina suf­fo­cated and died in­side an el­e­va­tor af­ter it crashed while she was mov­ing her fur­ni­ture in­side a Salmiya build­ing. All at­tempts to get her out of the el­e­va­tor failed. The build­ing’s haris (jan­i­tor) called po­lice and told them a new tenant was stuck in the el­e­va­tor, but they found her dead when they ar­rived. The body was re­cov­ered by the coroner. Preliminary in­ves­ti­ga­tions in­di­cated that the el­e­va­tor mal­func­tioned due to the ex­cess weight as the woman was us­ing it to move heavy fur­ni­ture. Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing.
