PHUKET: -- A worker of a hotel near Phuket’s Patong Beach was crushed to death by an elevator’s counterweight Friday morning, police said.


The accident happened in the basement of a hotel in Tambon Patong of Krathu district at 7:20am.

 

The killed worker was identified as Suthep Lookyi, 32, who worked as a room boy for the hotel.

 

Other workers said Suthep accidentally dropped a room key into the elevator chamber and tried to retrieve it from the basement floor without informing the elevator service department first. The counterweight crushed him when a hotel guest then used the elevator.

In the civilised world opening a lift shaft access would cause the lift to lock out, unless of course it had long been overidden due to the retrieval by the unqualified being a regular occurrence

Tragedy but how stupid must you be to do something like that

A tragedy indeed, for him and his loved, all for the sake of a couple of bucks worth of hardware.
