New Yorkers took to the stairs on Thursday and Friday following a stunning elevator accident that killed an advertising executive in midtown Manhattan. Many residents and workers in the nation’s biggest city bypassed riding the elevator after Suzanne Hart, 41, was pinned by the doors of an elevator in her office building and crushed when the elevator moved upward. Some New Yorkers were reportedly braving 10 flights of stairs as fear pulsated through a city of busy skyscrapers whose tenants depend on the vertical vehicles. Transel Elevator, a service company, had worked on the elevator just hours before Hart’s death, spurring investigators to look into what could have caused the car to move with open doors.
