Death of Chinese Woman Trapped in Elevator for Month Stokes Uproar

In a crowded Chinese neighborhood, she suffered the loneliest of deaths. She was trapped and forgotten in a broken elevator of her apartment building for more than a month before her body was discovered last week. She had a hand pressed against the door, some accounts said. But now this death in Xi’an — the northwestern city famed for its ancient entombed terra-cotta warriors — has stirred protest and a nationwide roar of anger by people furious that lax building management can turn trivial acts, like riding an elevator, into fatal traps, news reports and Internet accounts said on Monday.
