Lift Mishap

It was reported that a pregnant woman fractured her right leg when an elevator car at a Mall came crashing down. I am wondering why this type of incident is still happening in this country since as far as I know all owners of such premises are required to carry out compulsary periodic maintenance of the lifts. That make users like me to be afraid of using lifts in the future. However, usually, there are information available in the lifts indicating the last time that the lifts had been serviced. Hopefully, all lifts in any premises will have such information available because through the information, in case that no proper maintenance is being carried out, users can have a choice of not using such facilities or users have an evenue to compile complaints to the relevant agencies. Read HERE for further information about the incident.
