CCTV footage of the event purportedly shows the boy attempting to force open the doors of the elevator, but to no avail. Bisrakh police are looking into the matter.

The boy appears to be hitting its walls and calling out in a bid to draw attention to his plight.

In the second such incident in Delhi-NCR in a week, a child got stuck inside an elevator for several minutes in a Greater Noida society on Friday evening. While Bisrakh police are looking into the matter, no complaint or FIR has been registered in this regard yet. The incident allegedly occurred at Nirala Aspire society.

CCTV footage of the event purportedly shows the boy in question attempting to force open the doors of the lift, but to no avail. He also appears to be hitting its walls and calling out in a bid to draw attention to his plight.

According to an email sent to society residents by those responsible for maintenance at the society, the child got stuck at 5.44 pm and was rescued seven minutes later. The mail further reads, “……. the kid by mistake hit the door with his bicycle twice due to which the lift got stuck at the fifth floor.” They also requested residents to ask their children to maintain distance from the lift doors and not move their cycles.

The mail said the NOC on lift safety was already renewed, and a complaint was sent to the lift company for an inspection to be carried out as a precautionary measure.
