Elevator Death Cause Being Investigated

A man in Bulgaria died after he attempted to enter an elevator on the 14th floor of a residential building. However, the elevator was on the 15th floor and he fell down the shaft to his death.

Reports are that the 70-year-old man used a screwdriver to open the elevator door on the 14th floor. Neighbors reported that he had done so repeatedly over the years, and would descend to a bridge in the shaft. The elevator had been properly serviced and maintained.

The Bulgaria State Agency for Metrology and Technical Surveillance and local law enforcement agencies are investigating the accident.
