Lift decapitates teen

`A holiday job at a store in Cape Town ended in a horrible death for a Hanover Park teenager when he stuck his head out of a half-open goods lift door to see why it was not working – and it suddenly started moving and crushed his head, decapitating him. [..]

“Terrence stuck his head out of the lift, which was not completely closed, to see why it wasn’t moving. The lift suddenly shot up and ripped his head open.”

“A woman who was in the lift with him, was covered in blood.”

“I just heard shouting and screaming, and when I saw the woman covered in blood I knew my brother was dead.”‘
