An elevator in a South Jakarta office building crashed on Thursday morning leaving two people dead, a company spokeswoman has said.
Nur Shilla Christianto, head of corporate communications at PT Nestle Indonesia, confirmed on Thursday that the accident in Tower B of the Nestle building in the Arkadia Green Office complex on Jl TB Simatupang claimed two lives.
"An elevator crashed in our office at around 9:40 a.m. The two people who died were our employees," she said as quoted by newsportal kompas.com.
