A little girl playing by a lift with her brother was lucky to escape unharmed after their game went horrifically wrong.
Seven-year-old Rui Rui had been playing with her older brother at their grandparents' flat block while their parents were at work in China.
The siblings found a long flat plastic cord, normally used on packing boxes, and decided to tie one end each around their waists.
The little girl then got in the lift and pressed a lower floor, while still attached to her 14-year-old brother by the plastic.
CCTV images from the residential tower's lift show young Rui Rui standing inside the lift on her own on the 24th floor when the car suddenly descends.
