Manhattan Woman Injured in Elevator Accident

A young woman from Manhattan was recently injured in an elevator accident that happened in her apartment complex.

The woman suffered severe head injuries from the incident and investigators are still trying to determine exactly what happened to cause the elevator to malfunction.

Elevator Plunges Six Floors

Jessica Carter, 22, reportedly had just stepped onto the elevator in her building when it suddenly gave out.

The elevator is said to have fall six stories before it hit the basement.

Accident Causes Injuries

Carter was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital suffering from head injuries after the accident occurred and no details have been released regarding her current condition.

However, she remains in the hospital and the Department of Buildings is still investigating the accident.

Second Elevator Accident in Building

According to other residents living in Carter’s building, this is not the first time the elevator has fallen.

Neighbors say a few months ago the elevator plunged to the basement causing another resident to be hospitalized, but building management failed to fix the problem.
