Four Workers Killed in Elevator Collapse in India

Four elevator workers were killed and two severely injured when an elevator on the 14th floor of the under-construction Taloja Phase 2 housing development in Navi Mumbai, India, fell on June 27, The Times of India is among outlets to report. The incident apparently happened when the locking system on an external construction elevator failed, causing the unit to come “crashing down” on top of an elevator car parked at ground level. Those who died were a 40-year-old elevator operator, a 48-year-old subcontractor and two workers, both 25. The 25- and 22-year-old workers who were severely injured were subjected to pieces of metal falling on them when the structure housing the elevator collapsed. Investigations are underway and criminal charges are possible.
