Sir Stirling Moss takes a step into the Beyond by bIG bLOGGER on 9 March 2010 4:55pm

[According to the Sydney Morning Herald]
<< Formula one legend Stirling Moss falls three floors down lift shaft >>

Apparently Sir Stirling didn't have the correct Formula for entering the lift,and received: 2 broken ankles,4 broken bones in his feet,and some nasty bruising to his vertebrae. It will take him 6 weeks to recuperate.
In 1962 he crashed his Formula 1 racing car at the Goodwood circuit,writing the car off and nearly killing himself.

Maybe he should keep out of lifts in future and stick to motor racing--it's a darn bit safer.

It is rumoured he is being comforted by Kylie and Danni Minogue...not bad at all,huh?....This TLC will speed his recovery...

QUESTION: Have you ever had a bad experience in a lift (..or in a lift shaft?) ??

Er, yes, actually. I was a kid in Sheffield and we took a short cut through a multi-storey car park (parking lot). We needed to get to the top to be level with the street we wanted to be on, so we used the elevator. Biiiiiiiig mistake. It got stuck and we were in there for ages, before we managed to get it going again. I've not been in an elevator on my own since.

Yes,TERRY S,this is a very commonsense article and makes some quite good and valid points.
Of course,Stirling Moss is 80 years old,so really he has got off remarkably lightly,considering the height from which he fell.

I thought that, too. He was a lucky man.
