Elevator Door Damage Looked at in Fenway Park Fall

fenway

BOSTON (AP) — A state official says “extreme force” against the bottom of an elevator door at Fenway Park may have led to the fall of a woman down an elevator shaft last week.

Executive Office of Public Safety and Security spokesman Terrel Harris tells The Boston Globe the finding about the force was preliminary and investigators are still conducting their review. The office oversees the state Board of Elevator Regulations.

He says it appears that “extreme force against the bottom of the door actually broke the fasteners and the metal backup safety system that held the doors in place.”

That created a gap through which the New Jersey woman fell two stories Friday night.

He said the door was “in perfect working order” during its last inspection in February.
