A 22 year old New York woman was hospitalized with head injuries after the elevator she was in fell from the 6th floor to the basement. The extent of her injuries is not known but she was admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital.
The woman was in an elevator in Washington Heights visiting a friend when the elevator fell on her way out of the building. The incident has residents of the building outraged as just last month the elevator fell for the first time. That fall was from the first floor to the basement and hospitalized one of the building’s residents.
The building’s superintendent denies any knowledge of problems with the elevator. The Department of Buildings is investigating residents’ claims as well as the elevator.
