In modern cities, we can see tall buildings everywhere. People who live in tall buildings can only rely on elevators to get up and down. Elevators have become an indispensable means of transportation for people. However, do you think that these steel machines, which provide convenience for people every day, sometimes bring people into an inconvenient situation. When the elevator breaks down suddenly, what should we do?
On June 4, 2004, the elevator of a hospital in Guangzhou broke down, three passengers were trapped in it, and the elevator quickly slipped to the first floor and shook
Moved a bit, fortunately the elevator did not continue to fall, but stuck between the first floor and the basement.
All three were very nervous in this situation. After the accident, Ms. Shao was the first to press the emergency call button in the elevator car. Because the elevator is old, the alarm doesn't work. At this time, the elevator was dark. The two young people trapped in the elevator together with Ms. Shao were more nervous. They knocked on the inner wall of the elevator and shouted desperately. It was lunchtime, and the corridor was empty. No matter how they called for help, it was useless. After being nervous, Ms. Shao found that the elevator was ventilated. She comforted two young people and reminded them to call for help with their mobile phones. However, among the three people's mobile phones, only Ms. Shao's mobile phone still has a little signal. She played 110, but the other party could not hear Ms. Shao's voice. In a hurry, Ms. Shao began to call her relatives. Although the cell phone signal was very weak, she finally called her husband, who immediately called the police. After the efforts of rescue workers, the elevator door was finally opened.
According to statistics, at present, there are about 450000 elevators in use in China, and accidents of people trapped in elevators happen from time to time. There are many reasons for people trapped in the elevator, which may be caused by power failure or other mechanical reasons. Before knowing the cause of the accident, all reckless escape behaviors will endanger the lives of passengers.
Trapped in the elevator, what should you do?
After the passengers are trapped, the best way is to press the emergency call button inside the elevator. If this button is connected with the duty room or the monitoring center, you need to wait for rescue.
What do you do when the alarm doesn't work?
1: You can call out loud or clap the car wall door.
2: It's louder to clap the door with shoes. It's mainly to let the outside know the signal of asking for help.
3: In some big cities, it is linked with the 110 center. You can also call for help by playing 110.
In addition, if no one passes by temporarily, the trapped passengers should keep their physical strength and pat the door intermittently, especially when they hear a sound outside, so as to attract the attention of passers-by. During the period when the rescuers have not arrived, the trapped should not keep calling for help, keep physical strength, observe the movement calmly and wait patiently for the rescue.
Pry gate? Lie on the window? Better wait
Because there is a national standard key to open the elevator, it is relatively easy for professionals to open the door of the car with the key from the outside after the elevator is in trouble. Passengers trapped in the elevator want to leave the faulty elevator at the fastest speed, so some trapped passengers forcibly pry the door or open the skylight on the top of the car to escape. Is it safe to do so?
When the elevator breaks down, the circuit of the door will fail. At this time, the elevator may start abnormally. If the door is pulled by force, it is very dangerous, that is to say, shearing, which is very easy to cause personal injury. For the same reason, trapped passengers are also forbidden to climb out of the skylight. However, in the case that the car door cannot be opened temporarily, it must be assisted by professional rescue personnel. After power failure and shutdown, the trapped personnel can escape from the skylight.
