This is one of the best info I received in my mailbox and worth to share. Thanx for the sender 🙂
MUST read and remember! What to do when you are trapped in a lift?!
We never know when and where accidents will happen to us OR people around us. Read on and hope this piece of information may help any of us when things do happen!
For ourself, our friends and our loved ones.
One day, while in a lift, it suddenly breakdown and it was falling from level 13 in a fast speed. Fortunately, I remembered watching a TV program that has taught that you must quickly press all the buttons for all the levels. Finally, the lift stopped
at the 5 level. While you are facing life and death situations,
whatever decisions or actions you make decides your survival. If you are caught in a lift breakdown, first thought in mind may be ‘waiting to die’…. But after reading the below, things will definitely be different the next time you are caught in a lift.
First – Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift.
Second – Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).
Third – Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line.
Fourth – Bend your knees
Reason – When the lift falls, you will not know when it will hit the
ground, and it may result in whole body bone fracture.
Point 1 – When the emergency electricity supply is being activated it will stop the lift from falling further.
Point 2 – It is to support your position and prevent you from
falling or getting hurt when you lost your balance.
Point 3 – Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for
your back/spine as protection.
Point 4 – Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. It can be
attached to the bone part of the activities, but limit the scope of
their activities in order to avoid injury. Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimised from the severe pressure during fall.
