The spate of people trapped in Dunedin lifts continued
Mosgiel resident Valda Gardiner (66) said she was trapped in
a lift at Consultancy House Clinic in Dunedin.
‘‘It gave two almighty jerks and came to a halt and 30
minutes later I was still in it, absolutely beside myself.''
Being trapped in the ‘‘tiny one metre square lift'' was
scary, she said. A technician freed her soon afterwards.
Eight people were trapped in the Mercure Dunedin hotel in
Princes St on Tuesday night and three teenagers were freed
from a lift at the Harvest Court building on Monday night.
