Yesterday there was an accident happened in the lift at Block 542 Jurong West Ave 1, Lift D. Apparently, the lift dropped from level 4 straight down to the ground floor, the lift was stuck halfway below the ground. Dad was on his way out when my uncle heard a snap and he immediately pulled him back in. It was a close one though.
If it were to be a few seconds later, his leg would have been stuck outside while the lift made its way down. My aunt was affected the most. She injured her leg when the lift made its impact to the ground. Dad quickly tried to force open the door when he injured his hand afterwards and brought everyone out. They didn't know what would have happened if they were to stay longer in the lift.
Police and ambulance were called and she was rushed to the hospital. So, before this, there was an accident happened but it was a group of boys and no one was injured. This matter was brought up to the Town Council and the MP while they made their rounds in the neighbourhood. The MP was informed about this matter upfront by the residents and even after a year, no action taken. Even if the resident knew about the faulty lift, the guests didn't know anything and this is the result of such ignorance.
Edit: Apparently, the lift wanted to move up even after it dropped. That is the reason why Dad wanted to evacuate as fast as possible. And the lift has no sensor. There is no way for people to know if the lift is able to hold the weight.
And please stop asking who they voted for MP. They were there for visiting. Stop being an idiot.
