A grocery deliveryman was seriously hurt after falling into an empty elevator shaft yesterday in the Bronx.

He had just brought groceries to a resident on the second floor of 1160 Cromwell Avenue. According to WCBS 2, "The woman who ordered the groceries said the elevator door opened, but the car was not there."

The Fire Department says the man, who had a shopping cart with him, fell three stories and suffered head and chest trauma, as well as lacerations to his legs. He was taken to Lincoln Hospital in serious condition.

The Department of Buildings website says that the FDNY has ordered an investigation.
