KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 2 – The body of a 50-year-old man was found on top of an elevator car here in Cheras today.
Cheras district police chief ACP Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon in a statement today said police had received a call through the MERS 999 line at about 1.20 pm.
"We were informed that a man had fallen through an elevator shaft and landed on top of a lift car at the Sri Sabah Public Housing (PA) flats here.
“Upon reaching the scene we found a body lying face-down on top of the (lift) car,” he said.
Mohd Mokhsein shared that the flat’s elevator maintenance company had earlier received a complaint that one of the lifts had been out of service.
“When a maintenance worker arrived 30-minutes later to conduct repair works, he found a body in a face-down position,” he said adding that the deceased had swellings in the face believed to be from the impact of falling from a high place.
Mohd Mokhsein said preliminary investigations found that the victim was a resident of the flat and was unemployed.
The remains were taken to Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz UKM for post mortem, adding that the case has been classified as sudden death.
