It’s understood the doors malfunctioned after a hospital porter tried to change lifts. The doors had opened and closed twice without the lift moving. As he tried moving her out of the lift, it started going up and he was unable to pull her back in on time. Firefighters took about two hours to release her body with her head trapped between the lift frame and the roof while her feet were left dangling in the lift shaft.
