A HARROWING video has shown the moment a five-year-old boy was crushed to death by a lift while playing with his sisters.
Mohammad Huzaifa Shaikh was with his siblings in the Cozy Shelter building in Mumbai, India when the tragic accident took place.
The distressing footage shows the five-year-old trapped between a heavy brown door and the lift’s metal gate moments before the lift starts to move.
The children had used the lift to reach the Mumbai building’s fourth floor.
As his sisters walk through the lift’s main door to leave, the harrowing clip shows Mohammad stop and turn to close the lift’s metal gate as the main brown door swings shut in front of him.
In a matter of seconds, Mohammad becomes stuck between the two doors and can be seen struggling to push the brown door open.
But while Mohammad is still trapped, the lift slowly begins move, rising to the sixth floor and tragically crushing the young boy to death.
The five-year-old sustained severe head injuries in the terrible accident and was pronounced dead on November 28.
Local police are now urging residents in the building to make sure children do not use the lift alone.
