    Dallas Doctor Dies In Freak Elevator AccidentAP -

    Elevator Doors Pin, Decapitate Surgical Resident In Houston

    FORT WORTH, Texas -- Officials of a downtown hospital are investigating the death of a surgical resident who was decapitated in an elevator mishap.

    Christus St. Joseph Hospital may release additional information about Hitoshi Nikaidoh's death after a closed briefing Monday, said hospital spokeswoman India Chumney Hancock. Nikaidoh, 35, of Dallas, was stepping into a second-floor elevator about 9:30 a.m. Saturday when the doors suddenly closed, pinning his shoulders. His head was severed when the elevator car moved upward. A female hospital employee witnessed the accident and spent about 20 minutes trapped inside the malfunctioning elevator until firefighters were able to rescue her.

    The traumatized employee who witnessed the death was taken to the hospital's emergency room for treatment of shock, but was released later that day, said Hancock. Photographs and measurements at the elevator by Houston police crime scene specialists were passed to Harris County medical examiners who continued conducting their inquiry into the accident. The entire elevator bank where Nikaidoh was killed was pulled from operation, but St. Joseph Hospital officials said the decision won't affect patient services.

    "They'll be shut down indefinitely until we've completed our investigation," Hancock told the Houston Chronicle in Monday's editions. Police said earlier that maintenance crews had worked on the elevators during the past week. Nikaidoh graduated in 2003 from the University of Texas-Houston Medical School.

    Elevators and escalators kill about 30 and injure about 17,100 people each year in the United States, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries 1992-1998 and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    A big WTF goes out to the article.


    So my question is: Didn't the elevator have some type of button that was like "Emergancy Stop" or "<>" open doors?

    Yep, right next to the "><" button. One slip of the hand and you've lost your head (or someone elses :) )

    So, I suppose this article's good enough reason to take the stairs more frequently, just judging by those stats.
