Elderly Man Critical After Being Trapped In Elevator


An 85-year-old man is in critical condition following an elevator accident in Harlem Sunday night.

The incident happened at the Wilson Houses on 105th Street just after 5 p.m.

Firefighters say the man was trapped in an elevator between the first and second floors and is suffering from a leg fracture after most of his body was trapped inside the elevator as his feet dangled outside between floors.

Resident say the elevators are constantly under repair and not in use, and some say climbing 20 flights of stairs is just unacceptable.
