Most Horrifying Elevator Accidents In History

Don’t shoot the hostage

If you fear heights and elevators then keep reading. It’ll make you feel better. Trust us. Listverse know what they’re talking about.

Death By Wedge

Talk about a terrible way to go. In 1906 a nurse was on her way home and hopped into an elevator with the elevator working closing the gate behind her. As the elevator began its descent there was a loud tearing sound. The worker tried to hold the elevator with the rope but an electrical malfunction meant that the cable partially gave way. As a sign of hope the elevator jammed suddenly allowing the worker and another nurse to help the occupant out through the gate bars. Fate didn’t allow it though with the cable snapping, dragging the nurse down the shaft wedged between the gate. She was found dead at the bottom of the elevator.

Head & Chest No More

Elevators in 1947 were better but still not up to scratch in terms of safety. At the Menzies Hotel in Melbourne, four occupants got into the service elevator from the basement. The elevator stopped responding to one of the man’s requests for it to stop on his floor and it eventually overshot the level stopping completely. The men smashed open the wooden panel to climb out and managed to help one woman out of the elevator. As they were helping the second woman someone above pressed the elevator button causing the the woman’s head and chest to be crushed between the floor of the lift and the wall of the lift well.

Christmas Eve Disaster

It was 1954 when Grace Sawtell was returning from a break at the Euston Hotel in Sydney. The elevator she was in jammed between the first and second levels. After receiving help from her cries by two men, she stepped out of the elevator but then it dropped, crushing her to death on Christmas Eve.
