Blocked fire doors could have been tragic incident

Keeping fire doors in good working condition and assuring that they meet annual inspection requirements under NFPA 80, includes making sure that doors are not blocked or obstructed. What are your thoughts on this situation? A simple annual inspection could have found this defect, before the exit was actually needed. Thankfully, this was not a fatal discovery.
