Body Of Woman Found 3 Days At Medan Airport

Aisiah Sinta Dewi Hasibuan was the woman who fell into a lift shaft in Kualanamu Airport, Medan and only discovered on April 27, three days after the unfortunate accident.

The Straits Times reported that the Medan Airport CCTV footage on the lift shows that Hasibuan can be seen walking into the double-sided lift through the doors on the right at about 8:24 PM Indonesian time on April 24.

When she entered the lift she is unaware that the doors behind her had opened seconds earlier and Hasibuan pressed buttons in the lift before making a call on her phone. However, when the doors open, Hasibuan then takes a step forward and falls directly into the depths of the lift shaft.

The CCTV footage was also circulating online and it’s unclear how the clip found its way online.
