Another lift trap incident in city

The spate of people trapped in Dunedin lifts continued yesterday afternoon.

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.
