A woman in China has allegedly had her leg severed by a faulty lift after getting it trapped between the closing doors.
The footage goes on to show that her leg was stuck between the doors as the lift suddenly went up.
According to Iqiyi, the woman was looking at her phone and did not notice the lift had started to move before she walked in. Another woman, who was right behind her, however, luckily escaped the dangerous situation as she did not walk in with her at the same time.
The lift went up three floors before it stopped and the woman can be seen lying on the floor and waiting for help.
The video suggested that her leg was cut off completely below her knee.
It's confirmed that the incident happened on 21 June, 2017, but only the footage had been released recently. The incident took place in Conch Building in Zhongshan West Road of Shanghai.
