Child Dies in Home Elevator Accident

In a tragic accident, Maxwell Grablin was crushed to death by an elevator in his beachfront home.

A 12-year-old boy in Bradenton, Florida has died in yet another horrific home elevator accident.

According to officials, Maxwell E. Grablin was searching for his pet hamster in the home’s elevator shaft when the elevator descended. He was crushed and pronounced dead on the scene by emergency responders.  His father, Patrick J. Grablin, was also in the home at the time of the accident.
