Man falls down elevator shaft while carrying boards in China

This is the moment a man fell into a lift shaft while transporting goods in China.

CCTV footage shows the man getting off the lift while pulling a stack of boards on a trolley on October 3. However, a rope attached to his cargo got caught between the sliding doors as they closed.

The man tried pushing buttons on the elevator’s control panel, but crashed through the doors when the rope he was holding slid upwards and pulled him into the elevator shaft.

It is unknown if the man survived the incident.
