A man suffered injuries after crawling into an elevator shaft when he needed to use the bathroom.
Police and emergency workers in Australia, were called to The Met bar in Brisbane, after the man fell into the shaft.
The incident began after 12:00 a.m., when the man, who was drunk, wanted to use the restroom, but mistook the elevator for the bathroom.
He was soon crushed by a six-person elevator, and he became pinned down at the bottom.
Elevator technicians were called out to the scene to help emergency workers free the man. It took them about an hour to free the man, who was not identified.
He was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, where it was determined that he suffered fractures to the pelvic area.
