NYC Elevator Accident

NYC Elevator Accident, A grand jury has indicted an elevator repairman on criminal charges in an accident that maimed a woman visiting a New York City hospital.

Brooklyn prosecutors say maintenance worker Jason Jordan disabled a safety switch that was supposed to stop the elevator from moving with its doors open.

Last Christmas, a 47-year-old woman was getting onto the elevator at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn when it lurched into motion. Her arm and leg were trapped and crushed, but she survived.

Jordan faces charges of assault and reckless endangerment. The name of his attorney was not immediately available.
