Elevator nightmare

Something I thought was an impossible urban legend:

A staff doctor at Christus St Joseph Hospital in Houston, TX was stepping into the elevator when the doors suddenly closed, pinning his shoulders between them. The malfunctioning elevator then ascended, decapitating the doctor.

A female hospital employee who witnessed the incident ended up trapped in the elevator with the doctor’s severed head for twenty minutes. She is now being treated for shock.

Details in the Houston Chronicle.
