Noida: As many as nine people were injured after an elevator at a hotel in Noida's Sector 49 collapsed and had a free fall from the third to the ground floor, said police on Friday. Among the injured three people suffered bone  fractures and were admitted to a private hospital. However, the police suspect the accident happened because of overloading.

 

 The incident is under investigation by Noida Police station 49.  "The incident was reported from Regenta Hotel and nine people suffered injuries in it. Six people had minor injuries while three have got their bones fractured,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Noida) Shakti Avasthy said. “Prima facie, it appears the incident took place because of overloading,” Avasthy said. Those severely injured were hospitalised, police said, adding further proceedings in the case are being carried out.
