Doctor falls four storeys into hostel lift shaft
Mistaking the door of an unlocked lift shaft for that of an adjacent toilet, a 29-year-old Filipino doctor plunged four storeys, suffering fractured ribs and broken bones in her left foot.
Dr Hannah Tan, who was in Singapore with family members for a conference, was staying at B88 Hostel in Jalan Besar when the incident happened in the wee hours of last Thursday morning, reported The New Paper.
Her room was located on the hostel's fifth floor and she was headed for the toilet at about 2am when she instead opened the door to the lift, the paper said.
She fell and landed on top of the lift, which was used to move luggage and goods. The lift had remained on the first storey.
