This video on Stomp shows a nerve-wracking experience of a pug almost getting killed in a freak accident at the lift.
Both owners seem distracted by their daily affairs, and one enters the elevator first.
The doors close with the owner inside the lift and the dog outside, bound by the leash. The other owner tries to pull the leash to free his dog.
As the lift ascends, it is almost strangled but thankfully breaks free from the leash.
Watch the panic-inducing video below.
