According to fire crews, the inebriated clubber had apparently mistaken the elevator shaft for a toilet stall. He was hit by a six-person private elevator and suffered pelvic fractures.

It took an hour to rescue him, before he was dispatched to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
