AMARILLO -- This afternoon Amarillo emergency responders were sent to the 1000 block of S. Polk on a public accident.
When responders arrived they learned that the victim, 22, had fallen 30 feet in an elevator shaft inside the building.
The male subject had been inside the building earlier in the day bringing in supplies for a job he was working on. Around 1:30 p.m. the male and another person went back inside the building. The second individual went to go turn on some lights and the male subject apparently thought the elevator was on his level, stepped in and fell 30 feet to the bottom of the elevator shaft.
The male subject was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.
