Sticker on an elevator in South Korea telling people not to ram the doors.

This subway station was the site of a man in a wheelchair who rammed the doors of an elevator multiple times, and eventually fell to his death after he disabled both doors.[1][2] He was awarded a Darwin Award[3] and elevators in South Korean subway stations later started to install stickers telling not to do that action.
