Eleven people were injured after a hotel lift plunged 6 floors. The incident occurred at the Sunbeam Hotel in Central Pattaya on Thursday Night and involved a service lift which was being used by a group of students from Chachensaow Province who are here in Pattaya to take part in a Regional School Mathematics Contest.

100 students and 12 teachers are staying at the hotel and they claim they were given authorization to use the larger service lift to allow for quicker transport from their rooms to the ground floor.

On Thursday Night, nine students, one teacher and one hotel staff member entered the lift on 12th floor and everything appeared normal until the lift reached the sixth floor when it began to freefall to the ground floor.
