In pain after elevator fall


Share post:

ELMEANOR FORDE still remembers the terrifying elevator crash she and six other people experienced last year at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).

It was the evening of April 11, 2016, when she and a group, including four nurses and an orderly, got on the lift on the ground floor heading to the A floor. However, when it got to its destination, the elevator, without warning, took a rapid descent, hitting the ground floor with a bang.

“I thought there was an earthquake,” Forde said, as she related how she and the other passengers screamed and tried to hold on to anything or anyone “for dear life”.

They were trapped in the elevator for 45 minutes, but to Elmeanor it seemed like a lifetime. She recently found out that the lift had fallen 52 feet.
