Elevator Worker Suffers Life Threatening Injuries

On Wednesday, July 5th an elevator worker was inside of a Manhattan building when a lift he was repairing fell on him. Earlier that very day four workers suffered minor injuries in an unrelated elevator incident.

“Four workers were temporarily trapped after their elevator got stuck 200 feet underground at a Brooklyn substation Wednesday morning and had to be lifted out by a pulley system one by one, the FDNY said.

A Con Edison worker and three contractors became stuck when the elevator malfunctioned at 7:40 a.m. at the Con Edison’s Farragut Substation, located at 1 Hudson Ave on the Brooklyn waterfront, authorities said.”- DNA INFO, a Neighborhood News Source
