Why? That sort of thing happens all the time... Last time it was a giant groundhog invading the city. Thankfully the Dubai police stopped it. Don't know who is responsible for this one...

Yes. The Dubai police now think it had something to do with this raccoon. Strangely all such incidents occur near the Burj Khalifa...

You don't have a button for each level on the service elevator.
With a 0 to 9 keypad, you dial the floor you need and then validate.

Sorry, no picture.
