New York, NY – Less than a week ago we reported on a woman in California who was crushed by the elevator she tried to climb out of when it became stuck between floors. Today, in New York, a woman was killed as she was getting on an elevator.
Officials say the woman was stepping into an elevator on the first floor of a midtown Manhattan office building when it suddenly shot upward. The woman, who was half in the car when it began its sudden ascent, was crushed between the elevator and the shaft wall. Some reports say her foot or leg was caught in the closing doors, while other say the elevator doors remained open the entire time.
Either way, the elevator was not done being a complete dick and became stuck between floors. Two other women in the elevator at the time of the incident were not injured but were taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation. I’m sure what they went through was traumatic, but pales in comparison to what happened to Karen Steinau. She had to sit in a stuck elevator with the head of the man it had just decapitated.
The cause of the elevator’s malfunction is currently being investigated, but I doubt they have the tools required to diagnose EVIL.Tags: Accident, Crime, Elevator, New York
