Young And Rubicam Elevator

Young And Rubicam Elevator, A woman was killed at a Midtown Manhattan tower housing advertising firm Young & Rubicam after entering an elevator and being crushed when it suddenly rose.
Suzanne Hart, 41, stepped onto the elevator in the lobby of 285 Madison Ave. when it shot up, pinning her between the elevator and the wall, according to the New York City Police Department. Two other people were in the elevator and treated at NYU Medical Center for trauma.
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer called for the city’s Buildings Department to mount a “full investigation” of the accident. The department’s website lists 56 elevator violations at 285 Madison going back to 2001. All were either dismissed or lacked information on how the issue was resolved.
“If a defect has been found, as was the case with one or more elevators in this building, New Yorkers deserve to know the nature of that defect,” Stringer said in a statement.
Tony Sclafani, a Buildings Department spokesman, said inspectors have issued a cease-use order on the elevator, one of 13 in the building. The last time the elevator received a safety violation was in 2003, and that condition was corrected, he said. The majority of the violations at the building were non- hazardous, he said.
