Y&R Building Elevator Kills Woman, Injures Two

yr-banner2.jpg

An elevator at 285 Madison Avenue, home to Y&R for 85 years, fell several floors (reports conflict on how the elevator malfunctioned) resulting in the death of a 41 year old woman and the injury of two others. The accident occurred around 10AM according to the New York Times. Emergency personnel are on the scene and people are being told no one can enter or leave the building. The elevator is question services floors 2-12.

Elevator inspection records indicate several violations have been cited at the 85 year old building but it's unclear whether or not the elevator that fell was issued a citation. Y&R had previously announced plans to move out of the building.

While several reports state the elevator fell, others report the elevator began to rise as the woman who died stepped on crushing her.
