Worker Dies in Elevator Accident

Reports say a person working on an elevator inside a South Miami Beach condominium were injured - one fatally - while working on the elevator.

The accident occurred when an unidentified workman was inside the elevator as another climbed out of the top of the elevator, into the shaft to fix an unknown problem. The elevator then began to operate, causing the worker to be crushed between the shaft wall and the elevator between the fifth and sixth floors, reports say.

The worker's body allegedly remained wedged in the shaft for over three hours following the fatal accident before emergency crews could remove it. An investigation was continuing.
