NEW YORK (PIX11) — A young girl was injured Friday after she fell down an elevator shaft in Manhattan Friday afternoon.
Officials confirm that the 12-year-old girl fell down three stories in a building at 41 Crosby Street in SoHo.
She was on the first floor of the building when she fell down to a sub-basement.
The child was taken to Bellevue Hospital with multiple traumas, including a broken arm.
The Elevator Unit of the Department of Buildings arrived at the scene to investigate, telling PIX11 a drop key was used and that the cab of the elevator was on the fifth floor when a girl stepped fell in. And just this past December the building was issued violations for failure to maintain the elevator which included oil spills, leaks and expired device tags.
