     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) is very concerned about the incident in which a man fell into a lift shaft at Block 8 of Chevalier Garden in Ma On Shan today (February 2). The EMSD has commenced an investigation into the incident with the Police.

     The EMSD was notified by the Police of the incident at about noon and deployed staff to the site immediately for investigation. The preliminary investigation revealed that the lift concerned is functioning properly and all landing doors of the lift concerned are intact. The incident is suspected to be related to the unauthorised opening of the landing door of the lift. The EMSD and the Police will continue to carry out in-depth investigation to ascertain the cause of the incident. 

     As a precautionary measure, the lift concerned is under thorough inspection by a registered lift engineer to confirm it is in safe working condition before resuming operation. The EMSD has also arranged the registered lift contractor to carry out inspection to 40 other passenger lifts in the same residential estate to ensure their safe operation. The inspection is expected to be completed by tomorrow. The EMSD will provide on-site supervision.
