The Australians in town for yesterday’s Prime Ministers XIII rugby league clash with Papua New Guinea had a frightful experience at the lush Crown Plaza Hotel in downtown Port Moresby.
Some of them got stuck in the lift yesterday.
Reports said they had overloaded the lift and, instead of going up to their rooms, they plummetted downwards to the ground floor only to be stuck halfway.
The first few cries for help were followed by mischievous laughter until help arrived 15 minutes later.
No one was hurt. Players Matt Bowen (below) and Ben Smith are helped by technicians as they made their way out. – Nationalpic by AURI EVA
