After touching down in China, Paris Hilton was quick to experience the country’s somewhat lax safety standards, filming the commotion after she found herself stuck in an elevator.
TMZ reports that the socialite spent almost an hour in a crowded lift after security and mechanics fail to open the doors. While relatively calm at the beginning, Paris gets gradually more and more panicked as the group remain trapped. “I can’t believe I’m stuck in the elevator right now” the blonde heiress says as cellphone ringtones can be heard going off around her.
As things progress and mechanics fail to rescue the group, Paris and the other occupants start to swear. One man eventually managed to risk life and limb to pry the door open and then threw up afterwards according to other passengers at the scene.
But nothing was to stop her from making it to her 3,880 yuan per head DJ set at a club opening in Beijing.
Paris Hilton began her visit to China in Shanghai before jetting off to Beijing on Thursday. Entry to her party in Shanghai was decidedly cheaper with a 120 yuan pre-sale.
