Careless Waitress Gets Her Head Stuck In A Freight Elevator

Rumble CCTV footage has emerged from Saratov, Russia capturing the moment woman got stuck her head in a freight elevator.

Waitress Renata Kovalyova was in the middle of her shift at a cafe in a shopping center in Saratov, unloading the dishes from the dumbwaiter. She has one more before she sends the elevator back down towards the kitchen, so she makes a very strange move.

Renata pushes the button that sends the elevator down, but then she reaches in to finish unloading the trays! At first, it seems like she will manage, but the dumbwaiter is going too fast and eventually traps her inside.

The 32-year-old woman was left trapped with her head inside the freight elevator, the edges pushing on her neck and spine. She struggles to release herself from the tight situation but eventually passes out, probably from lack of air, her head still inside the shaft.

Her choking cries were heard by the cafe’s manager Maxim Artemiev before she fell unconscious. He later said: “I was walking up the stairs when I heard this horrible choking cry. When I got to the top of the stairs I saw a body sticking out of the lift. I immediately called for help and with some other waiting and kitchen staff managed to get her out.”

Luckily for Renata, she was still alive when her coworkers got her out of the elevator shaft. She was rushed to the hospital, where they treated her for injuries to the head and spine. She is expected to make a full recovery.
