  1. The whole video of the incident is on worldstar

  2. She said elevator plunged 70 floors and no one was hurt, but video clearly shows someone was killed.🤔

  3. GOD IS MERCIFUL TO ALL WHO LOVE HIM THROUGH JESUS, TRUST IN HIM ALONE AND PRAY FOR THIS FAMILY … Romans 6:23 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 2:4-9 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

  4. I hate freak accidents. The worst is if you are sleeping and a plane hits your house or building.

  5. I've had bad elevator nightmare about this.

  6. If he was inside the elevator, how'd he get crushed by it? Makes no sense.

  7. I feel so sorry for this poor man and his family and wish them condolences

  8. This is why I prefer to use the stairs most of the time. I always have that worry in the back of my mind that whenever I use an elevator, it'll screw up and I'll end up either getting stuck inside or it'll malfunction in such a way that I'll get seriously injured somehow.

  9. Google reviews of Manhattan Promenade down, why?

  10. I actually worked with Sam a few years ago in NYC. I now live in LA but grew up in the Midwest, too. I got fired from the company Sam and I both worked at. My departure had a-lot of drama around it and I had, unfortunately, made quite a few enemies by the time I left (there's two sides to every story and that's not what this post is about), but Sam was one of the only people who reached out to me to tell me to keep my chin up and hang tough. He even said, and I quote, 'use that midwestern strength to pick yourself back up again."

    He didn't have to do that. He and I were acquaintances at best. But he knew I was going through a sh*tty time and he reached out. That's what good people do. That's what people from the Midwest do. And anyone who would say something like that to a person down on their luck obviously knows the meaning of hard work and the struggles of adversity. NYC lost a great person who was doing that city a favor by choosing to live in it. RIP. My sincere condolences to his family during this horrific time.

  11. Same issue with the apartment building elevators in Springfield, Massachusetts.
