3 plunge into elevator shaft after elevator fails to arrive

Police said that when the doors of an elevator on the first floor of the six-story “Sunshine Chugo” building in Nagoya’s Nakagawa-ku opened, two men and a woman stepped inside, thinking that the elevator had arrived.

However, the elevator was still on the fourth floor of the building at the time, and the three, aged between 21 and 22, fell into a 1.5-meter deep hole. They suffered light back and arm injuries in the incident.

Auto-pilot can be dangerous…
