Woman falls down elevator shaft at Fenway Park

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A woman fell two stories down an elevator shaft at Fenway Park Friday night, officials said.

Police and state inspectors were examining whether one or both doors of an elevator opened in the incident.

The 22-year-old woman fell from the fourth floor and landed on the roof of the elevator, which was stopped on the second floor. It happened late Friday after the Red Sox lost to the Detroit Tigers, said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Boston Fire Department.

Officials were able to lower her down to the hatch on the second floor where she was placed on a stretcher and transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

"Everyone worked together to get her out as soon as possible," he said.

MacDonald said the woman was unconscious at the scene with injuries that appeared serious. She is said to be in critical but stable condition. Her identity has not been released.

"Various Red Sox personnel responded immediately and worked alongside the Boston Police Department, Boston Fire Department, and Emergency Medical Services to address the situation," a spokesperson from the Red Sox said in a statement. No other comments will be made because of the ongoing investigation and out of respect for the woman's family.

The incident is being investigated and the elevator is currently out of service.
