Lift falls six floors, man stuck inside for an hour on Sunshine Coast

A lift has fallen six floors with a man inside, leaving him trapped inside for more than an hour on the Sunshine Coast overnight.

Firefighters arrived at the commercial building on Hastings Street in Noosa Heads about 8.10pm on Sunday after the lift fell from the sixth floor to ground level.

A Workplace Health and Safety investigator arrived about 9.30pm as fire crews were leaving.

A technical rescue crew from the fire service pried the doors open about 15 minutes after arriving so the man, in his 30s, could get fresh air and talk to firefighters.

A lift technician was called in and with the help of fire crews, the man was freed by 9.25pm.

He was assessed by paramedics, suffering back pain. He was treated for spinal injuries, as a precaution, and taken to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
