n a bizarre and tragic incident, a man recently led his elderly father-in-law to his death by recklessly opening the doors of an elevator shaft when the lift had not yet arrived.
Surveillance footage from the apartment building in an unnamed Chinese city shows the two men waiting together for an elevator. While waiting for the lift to arrive, the son-in-law apparently got impatient. Rather than taking the stairs, he decided instead to use a key to unlock the elevator doors to have a look inside the shaft.
After he did so, the father-in-law walks into the shaft, apparently believing that the lift had finally arrived. Instead, he fell 8 meters to his death.
