New tenant dies inside elevator
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.
