Woman killed in elevator accident

Posted on December 14th, 2011 No Comments

A 41 year-old woman was killed in an elevator accident in which it crushed her between the car and the wall shaft. Officials believe the doors closed as she was walking in, trapping her, and then began to move upwards. The accident occurred this morning in a Manhattan office building.

Two witnesses in the elevator helplessly watched the woman’s death. They were rescued by firefighters after the elevator became stuck between the first and second floors. Although they were not physically hurt, they were taken to the hospital for psychological trauma.

The New York City Department of Buildings conducted an inspection over the summer shows that a defect was found in one of the elevators. An investigation will search for causes of the malfunction and if it was related to the defect.

Our deepest sympathies are with the friends and family of the victim.
