Noida News: The cable of a lift at a housing complex in Noida snapped on Thursday, causing a free fall between floors and the death of a 73-year-old woman, according to police officials.
As information regarding the event that occurred in a high-rise community was being gathered, a police officer revealed that the lift did not touch the ground but was instead wedged between some of the middle levels of the structure.
According to the official, who cited early data, the woman was by herself in the lift when its wire snapped, resulting in a free fall.
“Today, a woman going in the lift fainted due to the breaking of the lift wire in Paras Tierra Society in Sector 137, under Police Station Sector 142 area. The woman was alone in the lift. She was admitted to Felix Hospital but died during treatment,” the police said in a statement.
The incident happened at about 4:30 p.m., and the woman died an hour later in the hospital.
“The woman had injuries on the back of her head and soma abrasion on her elbows, which appears to have been caused due to the fall of the lift. There was no pulse and her eyelids were dilated when she was brought to the hospital, suggesting a possible cardiac arrest because of the suddenness of the event,” a doctor of the Felix Hospital told PTI.
The doctor noted that efforts were made to revive the patient, but they were unsuccessful.
Hundreds of Paras Tierra residents protested the incident and the maintenance of shared utilities, such the operation of the lifts, in the complex where the society is located.
