Out Of Site, Out Of Mind
A builder survived a six-storey fall down a lift shaft because workmates had been using it as a rubbish chute. Doctors in Podgorica, Montenegro, believe a pile of cardboard packaging and plastic at the bottom of the lift shaft cushioned Branislav Gomilic's fall so that he only broke his arm. "One minute he was talking to us, the next he had disappeared," said a colleague.
