Elevator Plummets 3 Floors, Seriously Injuring Four

Four people were seriously hurt and ten other suffered minor injuries after a freight elevator malfunctioned and crashed into a basement. As reported, at the Bed Bath and Beyond store, the elevator suddenly plunged three floors while carrying 24 construction workers. The Buildings Department discovered that a faulty elevator brake was defective, which caused the elevator accident. The DOB issued a violation to the owner because the freight elevator was not even supposed to be carrying passengers.
