If you have a fear of being on elevators, well, these photos are not for you... We are officially traumatized!
Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Recently, a close-circuit television (CCTV) footage and s series of photos went viral online of a man whose feet got stuck in between elevator doors at Flat Desa Pinang 2 in Jelutong, Pulau Pinang last Friday (June 17th).
In the video, the man can be seen entering the elevator when he accidentally tripped as the elevator started moving up as soon as the door opens. The elevator then continued to move up as the man was struggling to get up, which was what got his legs stuck between the doors.
The Jalan Perak Fire and Rescue Department arrived immediately after the incident happened, and found that the elevator did not stop which caused the man to trip on the two uneven surfaces.
Firefighters can be seen in the photos prying open the elevator door in an effort to save the poor man.

After almost 30 minutes, the firefighters were able to successfully free the man and he was brought immediately to the hospital to receive further treatment.
Haih, we’re so glad he is okay. It must be so scary for him!
