Harare - One person died and two were injured on Wednesday when an elevator fell several floors in a government building in Zimbabwe capital Harare, a report said on Wednesday.
According to the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC), an elevator car fell on three technicians who were working on four old elevators at Chaminuka Building where the country Central Intelligence Organisation has offices.
The three technicians were rushed to hospital where one of them died.

The remaining two were said to be in a stable condition.
Unconfirmed reports earlier said the lift had fallen nine floors.
The technicians were employees of a company called New View.
The Herald newspaper warned in a report in 2012 that Zimbabwe's more than 1000 elevators were "death-traps" because most were not being serviced.
Investigations are continuing.
