Liftman dies after falling into shaft

A man died after falling into the elevator shaft of a high-rise building in Dhaka's Malibagh area this morning.

The deceased Suman Debnath (25) was the liftman of the building.

Mainul Hasan, a resident of the building, said Suman, who hailed from Sylhet, had been working in the building since childhood.

The building's lift got stuck in the morning and the accident happened around 8:00am when Suman opened the lift door on the fifth floor and peeped inside.

Suddenly he lost balance and fell into the shaft. He was critically injured. 

He was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where he died around 12:00pm, said Bachchu Mia, in-charge of DMCH Police Outpost.
