A dozen people have received injuries after a lift in Ambuja city centre broke down and slid down to parking level.
The mall management swung into action and in their preliminary findings have concluded that the accident may be due to people in the lift ignoring the overload signal of the lift. The reason appears probable as the malls witness many more footfalls on weekends.
Even as an elaborate inquiry will prove as to what caused the accident, the mall management meanwhile rushed the injured to near by hospital where they were given first aid. At least one of the injured already has been discharged.
The unfortunate accident must wake up the administration to make necessary inspections of such lifts and other amenities provided by mall management. They must also create awareness amongst visitors to ensure that they don’t go on overloading the mechanical systems to avoid accidents.>
