Man Walking and Watching TV at the Same Time Falls Through a Hole

Eoin is a poor guy who was walking while watching TV and juggling multiple things in his hands (his phone perhaps?) when he fell straight through the floor. Like, literally. A trap door in the ground was left open and he didn't notice until he plunged completely through the hole.

Everything is fine with Eoin save for a few sprains here and there (ankle and knee), which is sort of miraculous given that he unknowingly spiraled 10 feet down what was presumably an uncomfortable shaft. Here's what the bar said what happened:

Eoin was working behind the bar doing sound for bands and such and he was walking looking at the TV and did not see the hole which was actually a small elevator shaft used to bring up towels and such from the basement.


He also "hit the top of the elevator at the bottom of the shaft" to end his fall which, um, sucks since elevators aren't exactly made with the softest of materials. I think it's a good reminder that no matter how distracted we get with our electronic life, we have to stay alert of the real world because you never know when sinkholes, bears and now, gaping trap doors behind a bar will appear and suck you out of the floor and into oblivion.
