Elevator nightmare in Kew Gardens
Violations are being issued after debris fell onto an elevator in a Queens apartment building Friday night, but investigators are still trying to determine what caused the incident.
It's unclear how far the debris fell, but fire officials at the scene said it caused the elevator to collapse.
Damage could clearly be seen on the elevator's roof, and chunks of debris were scattered on the floor.
No one was in the elevator when the incident occurred at the Cadillac Building on 83rd Avenue in Kew Gardens, but residents were shaken.
The debris came crashing down nearly a week after one tenant, Shaun Broughton, got stuck inside the elevator for 45 minutes.
