Telangana Forest Minister Jogu Ramanna and local MLA N Diwakar Rao had a narrow escape when the lift of a private hospital in Mancherial slipped from the first floor to the ground floor.

The minister and the MLA, however, did not receive injuries.

The minister had gone to inaugurate the hospital. A bunch of others and he wanted to go to the third floor, but the lift slipped once it reached the first floor.

Apart from the minister and the MLA, many other public representatives were in the lift when it collapsed. The police and the district authorities felt greatly relieved as no one was injured in the incident.

Mancherial DCP M S Venugopal Rao said that the cables of the lift had snapped due to the lift being overloaded.

"If the cables had snapped when the lift was in either in the second or the third floor, the occupants would have received injuries. The minister is fortunate to have just had a close shave," a police official said.

The minister later attended all the scheduled events.

It may be recalled that six months back, a tent under which the minister had attended a meeting caught fire following the bursting of crackers, again in Mancherial.
