People’s park Complex has just three lifts servicing the whole building, however, unfortunately they broke down at the same time on Monday (14 November), forcing some residents to climb as high as 30 floors to their homes .
Shin Min Daily News reported on Tuesday (15 November) that the lifts at the 31-storey complex broke down at around 1.30pm.
One of the residents told the Chinese daily mail that two of the lifts were not operating when she arrived at the complex that afternoon.
Therefore, she took the third lifts which broke down upon reaching the 15th floor. She said that the doors of the lift were unable to close and became unresponsive.
She waited for two minutes, then decided to take the stairs instead. She lives on the 29th floor, which means that she had to climb up 14 floors just to get back to her house.
The building’s management then told Shin Min that the reason for the frequent incidents of lifts break down is that because they have been in operation for a long time.
It also said that technicians were sent to repair the lifts and one lift was back in operation quickly.
The management added that it conducts regular maintenance checks on the lifts and technicians are on standby throughout the day in case of a breakdown.
