Kiama lift rescue


A rescue of a different kind for SES volunteers at Kiama.

On Saturday morning they were called to the railway station following reports two adults were trapped inside the elevator.


The internal doors had become separated from external doors and were unable to be opened.

The SES crew stabilised the elevator and doors, isolated power to the station, cut door cables and then used the jaws of life to force open the doors and free the occupants.


No one was injured.
