This is the shocking moment a hapless repairman smashed a glass while carrying it inside a lift in China.
CCTV footage shows part of the glass being stuck between the doors after he pushed the close button before the lift moved up in Dongguan City, Guangdong province on May 8.
The worker tried to pull the glass out but it was too late as the lift quickly moved up even when there was an object obstructing the doors.
Shards of glass were seen exploding onto him but he was not seriously hurt aside from having a few scratches on his neck and arms.
The repairman told local media: ‘I immediately pushed the lift’s emergency button. I thought the door was broken. It should not have closed because part of the glass prevented it from fully closing.’
The incident was reported to the building’s maintenance team and found that the door’s sensor malfuctioned as it could not detect the transparent object.
