Man Narrowly Avoids Decapitation By Elevator In Insane Video

  • A man narrowly avoided getting decapitated when an elevator malfunctioned and the doors closed in on him, video footage shared online Sunday shows.
  • The footage depicts the moment a man attempted to exit an elevator — but the dumbwaiter started descending to the next floor before he could get his whole body out through the closing doors and into what looked like a hallway.
  • In the last, split second, the man seemed to realize what was happening and fell backwards into the elevator as it moved downwards, saving him from what would likely have been serious injury or death had the doors closed on his body.
