Night out ended in lift rescue drama

Have your say

Nine people had to be rescued from a lift designed for four after it got stuck between floors at The Genting Club in Sheffield.

One firefighter who responded to the call said: “One of the women took a funny turn, started to panic and thought she was going to pass out - it was a bit cramped in there.”

The lift could not be moved mechanically so firefighters prised the door open and helped the people out by ladder, on Sunday.
