The lift at 511A Yishun Street 51 has a fetish for trapping people. Its strange addiction was brought on by debris left behind by renovation contractors, according to the Nee Soon Town Council (NSTC). The first incident happened about a week ago when Mr Liu Yu Zhu was trapped for around 20 minutes on his way to work, while two separate incidents, one involving two elderly citizens and two young children, were filed about the same lift in the span of 24 hours. There are also reports of malfunctioning display boards within the lift, indicating that it was overloaded when in reality, it was entirely empty.
The block is reportedly new and "not fully occupied".
