The Ministry of Labour employee who was trapped in an elevator during the island-wide power outage Tuesday, is back at work.
A ministry official told OBSERVER media that Terry Lewis returned to work yesterday, just one day after the elevator mishap in which she was trapped for almost an hour.
A press release from the ministry yesterday stated that the unfortunate situation unfolded at the offices of the Ministry of Legal Affairs, Public Safety and Labour on Thames and Long Streets as a result of the power outage.
The communique stated that the automatic backup generator failed to engage within the customary few seconds, which resulted in an employee becoming stuck in the building’s elevator.
“The building is managed by the State Insurance Corporation (SIC), and once they were notified of the situation, a maintenance team arrived and started working to free the employee. The emergency services were also called as a precaution,” the press release read.
“The [trapped] employee was eventually assisted from the elevator, and along with another employee, taken to the hospital for a routine check-up.”
