SINGAPORE: A woman was taken to hospital on Sunday (Feb 24) after a glass door fell on her at Alexandra Central Mall.

CCTV footage shows the woman entering the 4th storey carpark lift lobby on Sunday evening via a double glass door entrance.

One side of the double door fell onto the woman, who collapsed to the floor. It had fallen off its hinges after it was hit by the other side of the double door as it was swinging to a close. 

A man who had earlier entered the lobby quickly moved the door from the top of the woman with the help of a bystander as others arrived to help.
