Elevator and Train Operate With 'Open Doors'

Elevator door half-closed and still operating at Pasir Ris-Punggol town council

Elevator not operating? A troubling experience for many residents who live in the high-rise buildings of modern day. But what about a half-operating elevator that operates while its doors are not operating properly? Likely to be a scary experience for many.

A video shot by Ben Tng shows an elevator operating while its door is only half closed, exposing the moving lift to passengers and also access to the elevator shaft.
Ben said that he filmed it on Friday morning while sending his boy to school. Ben stays at level 16 of the block.
