A contractor denied yesterday it was to blame for a lift accident at a public housing estate in October. ThyssenKrupp denied it had failed to supervise the maintenance and repair of the lift, which was empty when it plunged 14 floors at Shin Nga House, Fu Shin Estate, in Tai Po on October 25. Patrick Lim, representing the company, requested time to find foreign lift experts. The case has been adjourned to August 3.
