An impatient boy was grievously injured after he was hit in head by a lift in Patna. 

The horrifying incident occurred at Shail Villa apartments in Patna on Saturday.

A CCTV footage shows the 14-year-old boy, who has not been identified putting his head through the door, and getting hit by it. The impact of the blow is such that he falls instantly and lies motionless.

He was rushed to a hospital where his condition is said to be serious.

A longer version of the video shows him pressing the lift button and then peeping through the door which blocks entry to the shaft.

The door was fitted with a see-through glass pane and it is not clear how the boy managed to put his head through it.

In a similar incident, a 14-year-old girl lost her life in Mumbai in May after her head got struck by a lift which was hurling down.

Aafna Zaveri, a resident of Ashiana building in Bandra East, Mumbai, had put her head through the broken glass window of the lift door.

She was nearly decapitated after she was hit by the lift.
