Man Fatally Shafted By China Elevator

China’s latest elevator-based accident has sadly occurred as an older father-in-law fell to his death after stepping into what he thought was the elevator after his son-in-law forced open the doors before it actually arrived.

Caught by surveillance cameras in an unspecified Chinese city, the victim’s son-in-law can be seen impatiently prying open the elevator doors (apparently he had a key) despite the actual lift not yet arriving; unfortunately the older man was unaware and ended up walking into and falling down the elevator shaft 8 meters to his death.

The surveillance footage:

While a tragic happening, some may at least have more pity for the man than the victim of a previous elevator disaster
