Brakes Fail, Lift Reaches Top Floor, Smashes Against Roof At Noida Complex

In a horrific accident at a Noida housing complex last night, the brakes of a lift failed and it shot through the roof of the top floor. Three occupants of the lift were injured in the incident at the Paras Tierra Society in Sector 137.

The incident has triggered panic among the residents of the housing complex in Noida, a city that has reported multiple such lift malfunctions lately.

The elevators are now out of bounds for everyone, showed a video.

The lift was on the fourth floor of Tower-5 and its occupants were exiting when it malfunctioned. The brakes failed all of a sudden and it started climbing. The lift reached straight to the 25th floor and smashed against the roof.

Three people present in the lift were injured, the residents say.

This is not the first lift-related incident reported at the Paras Tierra Society. Last August, an elderly woman died of a possible heart attack after the cable of a lift snapped and led to a free fall between floors.
