An 80-year-old Saudi man died after plunging down a lift chute in a two-floor villa in the Gulf Kingdom, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The man, who had not known the lift had been removed for maintenance, opened the door and stepped in, ‘Sabq’ said.

“He plunged to the ground and died on impact. Police are investigating the incident,” the paper said in a report from the Western Madinah town.
