When you know its time to start using the stairs

Arab Times – 19 September 2011

Women stall lift: Five old women were trapped inside the lift of a residential building in Saad Al-Abdullah area. Rescue workers and paramedics rushed to the location after the Operations Room received information on the incident. They helped the women out of the lift which, sources say, malfunctioned because the total weight of the women — 400 pounds — exceeded its capacity. No injuries were reported.

Hold please.

... wait a minute.... did they mean 400 kilos?  That would make more sense.  400 pounds means they were like 80 pounds a piece - which is rail-thin for an adult-sized woman.
