Woman Killed in Home Elevator Accident in Texas
Tragically, on Friday a woman died as a result of an elevator accident in Crystal Beach, Texas. According to news reports, two women were in an outdoor home elevator when as the elevator ascended, the exterior door struck the underside of the home’s deck causing the women to spill out of the elevator, falling approximately 15 feet to the ground below. Suffering a significant head injury, one of the women tragically died. At this time, it is unclear what caused the elevator door to become ajar, whether it was a mechanical failure or human error.
