Alone in a lift on NY Eve

No one likes to be alone on New Year's eve, or on New Year's day, and especially if they are stuck in an elevator.

Hui Chow-fong, a meter reader for Hongkong Electric Holdings Ltd, spent the holidays alone in a lift where he was trapped for more than 40 hours before being found yesterday. The 36-year-old got stuck on Tuesday afternoon in a lift of an office building. The building was then closed for the New Year break. Reuters - Hong Kong
