Fatal accident in Japan

Today, shortly after midnight (local time), a fatal accident occurred in Kanazawa, Japan, involving a Schindler elevator. A 60-year-old woman, who was employed at the hotel where the accident occurred, died as a result. Schindler very much regrets this accident.

At the present time, the cause of the accident is not known and, therefore, we cannot provide further information concerning the course of events. Schindler is fully supporting the authorities in trying to establish the cause of the accident. The elevator in question was installed in 1998.

In Japan, the media have already reported on this tragic incident. In addition, Schindler has held a press conference to apologize to the family and to offer our sincere condolences.
