An elevator in Xingwen County, Sichuan, has made the news after going out of control and firing up the shaft with such speed that it smashed through the ceiling of the top floor and then dropped back down to the ground.
Luckily no one was on the elevator at the time it went wild. However, there have been previous claims of it acting erratically since its installation in October last year. On 24 July, a man reported that the elevator had trapped him inside after starting to shake and dropping suddenly. Then, on 30 July, one week after repairs had been made to the elevator, this incident occurred.
