081308shaft.jpgA 22-year-old woman was hospitalized last night with a head injury after falling six floors in an apartment building elevator, NY1 reports. After visiting her neighbor on the sixth floor of 90 Pinehurst Street in Washington Heights, Jessica Carter entered an elevator which malfunctioned and crashed to the basement. No details yet on the extent of her injuries, but she was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital around midnight with head injuries. And residents in the building are outraged because a few months ago the elevator fell from the first floor to the basement, hospitalizing one resident. The building's superintendent denies any prior problems with the elevator, but the Department of Buildings is investigating. And we'll be taking the stairs today.
