  • Man Crushed to Death by Falling Elevator in New York City

Funeral arrangements have been set for a Fox Point man who died in a tragic Manhattan elevator accident Thursday.

A Milwaukee-area man came to NY to fulfill his dreams. "At that point, the elevator took him down".

Waisbren was crushed by the elevator at the Manhattan Promenade tower on Third Avenue near East 25th Street just after 8:15 a.m., police said.

Mr Waisbren's father, Charles Waisbren, said his family was "absolutely devastated". As he tried to get out of the elevator, video obtained by the New York Post shows Waisbren attempting to exit the elevator when it gives way, lodging him in between the elevator vehicle and shaft wall.

It was not immediately clear if there were any violations or issues with the elevator.

"[The] least the building could do is provide safety".

Waisbren then attempted to grab a hold of the elevator door's frame and plant a leg on part of the lobby's floor, but was too late, witnesses said. The other people who had been riding the elevator, including the man who exited before Waisbren tried to, escaped uninjured.

Firefighters rescued five other residents who were trapped inside the elevator as it plunged towards the basement.
