Dog owners, beware! A dog was found dead, hanging from its leash, after its owner entered a lift without realising that the dog was still outside. I'm part of a lift rescue team and witnessed this tragic accident this morning (Jan 15) at about 6.30am. A dog owner was heading back to her flat at Bukit Batok Block 621 after walking her dog. She, however, entered the lift first while holding on to her dog's leash. The lift doors were closing but the dog still outside the lift at that time. It all happened very fast, and she had no time to react.
