Elevator drops several floors for second time

By Associated Press, 10/27/2000 09:29 COLONIE, N.Y. (AP) One woman was injured when an elevator plunged three floors, the second time in two weeks the elevator has mysteriously dropped.

Maintenance crews were looking at the elevator but have so far been unable to figure out what went wrong in the elevator that serves the four-story office building in this Albany suburb.

On Oct 13, four people were shaken up when the elevator dropped four floors right after the lights went out on the control panel. An elevator technician from Millar Elevator Service Company said the company has not been able to replicate the incident.

The village code inspector said the elevator had been inspected on a monthly basis.
