Fallout from the drop

Published: Tue, September 14, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m.


Elevator crews from ThyssenKrupp, the company that maintains the elevator in Kilcawley House, used these weights to test the elevator. The weight capacity of the elevator car is 2,500 pounds, according to a YSU Police report on the accident.


Katia Middlebrooks, a freshman Youngstown State University student from Toledo, describes riding on the elevator at YSU’s Kilcawley House dormitory when the car dropped to the basement. She says the experience traumatized her, and she won’t ride the elevator again. Twelve other students were on board the elevator when the accident occurred Friday at about 6:30 p.m. All were treated and released that night from St. Elizabeth Health Center and Forum Health Northside Medical Center in Youngstown.

An elevator accident at YSU has ‘traumatized’ a student and has officials searching for causes




Tests took place Monday to determine the safety of a residence-hall elevator that gave way Friday, injuring several Youngstown State University students, including one who vows never to ride it again.

Katia Middlebrooks, a freshman from Toledo, was one of the students on the Kilcawley House elevator when it fell.

“We were on the second floor, and we went to the fourth, and that’s when everyone came on to the elevator. And the elevator, it like wasn’t moving, and then we pushed the button and then it was coming down,” she said. “We didn’t know it was coming down until it hit the basement.”

She suffered a sprained knee and says she’s on medicine while it heals. Middlebrooks said she won’t ride the elevator again.

“I’m terrified,” Middlebrooks said. “I’m traumatized.”

It is an Otis Elevator cab, but the elevator is maintained by ThyssenKrupp Elevator, said Ron Cole, a YSU spokesman.

Representatives from ThyssenKrupp were investigating at the scene Monday, weight testing the elevator, he said. A call to ThyssenKrupp, which has an office in Cleveland, wasn’t returned late Monday afternoon.

A dolly stacked with weights rested outside of the elevator on the main floor of the residence hall Monday afternoon.

Thirteen students were on an elevator inside Kilcawley House at Youngstown State University when it dropped to the basement about 6:30 p.m. Friday night.

The elevator was occupied by several people Friday evening when it stopped at the first and fourth floors to pick up more passengers, a report from YSU police said. The elevator then went up as if it were going to the seventh floor “when suddenly it dropped to the basement,” the report said.

The elevator car capacity is 2,500 pounds, and the report lists 13 students who were on it at the time. It does not list the students’ weights but says “the incident may have occurred due to the car being overloaded.”

When it stopped, the car was about 10.5 inches below the stopping point, the police report said.

City firefighters and Rural Metro units also responded, and the fire department turned off the power to the elevator so EMS personnel could help those who were injured.

Seven of the elevator passengers were treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center and two others were treated at Forum Health North Side Medical Center.

Cole said that the elevator is equipped with a braking system that prevented a free fall of the car, allowing it to drop in a “controlled descent.”

Springs at the bottom of the shaft also are a safety measure, he said.

The elevator has been inoperable since the accident, causing students to take the stairs in the seven-story building.

A student who was not on the elevator, but said she notified authorities about the accident, told The Vindicator over the weekend that the students were in the elevator for 30 minutes waiting for help.

But Cole said the official university police log shows that the elevator failed at 6:28 p.m., and police were on the scene by 6:31 p.m.

Staff from the university’s residence life department plan to meet with students about the incident as well as to review elevator safety, he said.

In their statements to police, others who were on the elevator discussed how the elevator started to go up before dropping to the basement.

Rebekah Owen, 18, of Salem, wrote in her statement that she got on the elevator from the fourth floor, and there were “a lot of people in it.”

Owen wrote that she isn’t sure if someone hit the emergency button, but a voice came on and asked what the emergency was. The students answered that there wasn’t one.

“When we hit the button for our floor, it was taking forever for the doors to close,” she wrote. “Finally after we kept hitting the button it started to go up first; then suddenly, we could feel it going down.”

Owen wrote that the elevator hit and then bounced, and the students called for help.

Joseph Bass, 18, of Monesson, Pa., said in his statement that he got on the elevator at the first floor, heading upstairs.

“Elevator seemed overcrowded,” he wrote. “Got to the fourth floor, lights dimmed, and before I knew it, elevator crashed down to the basement.”

Let's see, 13 passengers and they were overloaded ? The rating of the elevator is 2,500 pounds . At 200 pounds each the load would have been 2,600 pounds . Katia Middlebrooks is a lot less than 200 pounds . There must have been some hefties on board .

Every time I read an update on this story, the numbers change. First, 10 were hospitalized, then 9 and now 7. I wonder which is the correct number?

Also, "traumatized"?? Really? How much money do you want to be "un-traumatized"?

And, there's some spinning going on. I tend to believe the students WERE trapped in that elevator for a half hour. The incident may have been reported at 6:28 pm, but it could have happened long before then. Too, even if the police did show up three minutes after the indicent's being reported, what were they going to do? Arrest the elevator? The YFD came and got the elevator open and the kids out. How long after 6:28 did THAT happen?

A real reporter would do more than just take Ron Cole's word for what took place.

It was an accident; something went wrong. Accidents happen. Hopefully, this traumatized young lady will not be seeking punitive damages but who knows in today's society where we want a free ride. Heck, they should see it as an adventure, something they can talk about for years to come and say, "What a ride we had that day!!!" I don't mean to belittle the situation but truly it does not sound life threatening and there were enough students to help alleviate anyone's going out of control.

Stan and NoBS both hit it right on the nose.. Reporters have to put a story together with the sources they have at hand and from their past experience gained with similar incidents. Also, they have a deadline to meet for the story. A malfunctioning elevator is not a rare occurence, but it isn't something she (Ms Dick) would be sent to report on daily.

As far as the students are concerned, they were very fortunate. But, later in life, some problems might surface from this incident. That's what's "hairy" about this type of accident. We hope nothing shows up years later from this.

Safety inspections. There's a reason for them. You betcha.

Oh and the spin begins,..

See and yet again one has to accept that accidents happen. However, when doing a an overview you check both pre and post incident posture and positioning and it provides clarity as to who's trying to deflect facts.

Where in doing that here Y.S. Shrew has leap into the textbook " blame game " where the students are to be portrayed as fault and witnesses obscured.

Just as suspected now there's absolutely no mention of that specific elevator, having been duly noted by students to have had problems.

One that had the elevator plunging to the basement " totally empty " as well as the sporadic other functionality faults previously noted.

There's also no mention of the drastically " scaled down " maintenance division. To include they've backed off the claim that the elevator has been inspected recently prior to this.

Where of course there's no mention of the more severe physical injuries sustained by some of those students.

Now in regards to individual injury not all afflictions are of broken bones variety. Where just like unfortunate vehicle or other various happenstance accidents. The affect on people vary and some people get unsettled in some positions that another wouldn't.

Where aside from the impact of being jostled around in such a fall. For one to find themselves entrapped inside a cubical and not know what else is going to happen or if or when you'll be rescued is a traumatic experience.

Thus if you're not that person you can't determine the impact an ordeal had on them. As far as medicine it could be an anti inflammatory, pain relief med or a sedative more mental anxiety.

Due to my experience in an array of aspects there are things I look and listen for in cases and or incidents. Which what Y.S. Shrew is showing is they're as pathetic as I've historically noted they are.

Due to my obtaining an eclectic and functionally affluent education elsewhere. In contrast when noting outfit's like Y.S. Shrew. Now has me unquestionably assured I made the right decision to have nothing to do with them

That is aside from previously playing pickup ball games with some of their basketball and football players. But I never held their attendance at that ridiculous rat pack against them.

Possibly if some of the students would use the stairs, especially when they are only going up or down one flight, this could be avoided. The elevators should only be used by people who are disabled all others should use the stairs!

This isn't a mock Betras by trade or character though. It's just when selecting counsel, always check to see what affiliations they have.

Where if they're cozy with the culprit you're making a mistake in your selection and embracing a conflict of interest.

You chose to get on the elevator, it plainly states a weight limit. When your running elbows with 12 other people shouldn't red flags start going off? None should be entitled to anything other than their hospital visit. It was their choice to ride the elevator. And their choice to never ride it again.

But see now just like you're of that quackery crowd whom tried to challenge the presidents birth certificate. Merely because to you he wasn't supposed to have been able to develop such a rapport and intellect of being so articulate.

So now you're perched somewhere in self pity. Trying to proclaim that no way in hell could I have came from the same valley as you. Yet be this much more of an intelligent being than you could ever imagine even in your wildest dreams,.. LMAO !!!

See it's clear you favored skipping school thinking that was cooler than ice cubes. Opting for the booze, tobacco, drugs, cussing with your cousins and going to family reunions to look for a mate,.. you ingrate.

Thus now when you realize what you've so irreversibly done to yourself. Of course you'd like to try to deflect it and allege it's all my, your veterinarian, TV programming or those dang ole " stoopid " teachers faults.

I was a resident of Kilcawley House not too long ago (still a student at YSU) and remember the elevator but also remember the craziness that went on in it. I, for one, am terrified of elevators (got stuck in one once for a length of time and that was all it took) and never took it except when I tore my knee and was on crutches...and I would get on and watch people jumping up and down at once with a countdown. Not only that, they liked to push the emergency stop button, trash it, and lord knows what else. And for some reason, when people were drunk, they would ride it for HOURS at night.

Do they still urinate in it regularly?? Nothing like being forced to take an elevator that smells like piss 24/7.

And in this young lady's defense, if she's like me...it doesn't take much to be absolutely terrified of them. For me, it took one incident of being stuck. Nothing happened but it simply stopped, and the lights dimmed. It freaked me out and now I avoid them at all possible times.

I am not saying it's these students fault, but every single aspect MUST be investigated.

18walter_sobchak(2586 comments)posted 5 years, 7 months ago

I will bet when the engineers complete their investigation, they will find that the elevator was overloaded and misused and that the emergency systemto permit a controlled fall operated as designed. That is why their are no serious injuries. But, go ahead and make YSU the boogeyman as if they somehow failed the students in preventing them from being typical young people.

And, PLEASE, just ignore Nunya and the incredibly inane rantings. I know its like driving by the scene of a horible accident. You don't want to but you look anyway. Ignore the nonsensical babbling!

" Elevators just don't free-fall,"

The lost patrol. elevators are made by man (and woman), and all things made by man can fail.Gears wear out, cables stretch, springs fail, ect. ect. ect..
YSU has done its job by having these elevators checked and tested as required by law, in short they have done thier due diligence. The thing about elevators is that you don't have your YSU mechanic check and test these elevators, you go to the experts for those services. When the lawsuits start to fly(and fly they will) it will not be YSU that will be at fault, it will be the hired experts that were hired to ensure the safety of this VERY SPECIALIZED peice of equiptment.

And as for you nunya your short list claim of occupations that you fancy yourself as, well we all know that Doctor would be out of the question, for we all know that Doctors do not have the luxury of time that your postings indicate that you have. Congressman, well you are to much of an self loving blowhard, the voters would have spoted the phony years ago.Gifted Artist, well you might have artistic talent, for the vast majority of artist's are egocentric, and you sure do display those tendencies.That leaves us with Lawyer and Boss, I would guess that you are both.A lawyer with a staff of one to sit around and listen for the rare ring that your phone may emit. Reread your post and then compare those to the MODERN written English language, do you see the desparity, and why people may question your mental health.

Walter, I know I should just ignore it...but whatever high school or college he attended should demand their credentials back! I also suspect he at one time either worked for YSU and was fired, or was a student, as he most definitely has a chip on his shoulder regarding the university.

We know each and every person that was on the elevator, so it will not be to hard to figure out the load that the elevator was sujected to.My guess is that weight will fall well below the max limit, so with that said what would be the cause. One question comes to mind that a physics major might be able to answer, and that is what is the increase in force applied to the elevator when you have all thirteen jump at the same time. It may turn out that we had thirteen idiots that decided to jump at the same time thinking that it would be a HOWL.

Nunya, just for fun, and for the last time, please tell us where you obtained your illustrious education. I would appreciate knowing from which instutution of higher learning you attended, and the alleged degrees you obtained. Clearly, and laughably, you consider yourself better educated than 99% of the people who post on this forum. If you are, as you describe yourself, so highly educated, then you would be familiar with the term "megalomania." I think this condition may be the root of your problems. "Megalomania is not a symptom or a diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)[2] or the ICD. However, grandiosity and delusions of grandeur have similar meanings to megalomania and are used in the DSM and ICD as possible symptoms of several mental conditions." Just thought I would share that with you.

Okay read enough, stopped at the kids shouldn't be taking elevators and furthermore going to college on tax dollars. What type of moron, stupid jerk are you? Really? Okay if these students weren't in school trying to make something out of themselves instead of being an idiot like yourself babbling with your mental midget self than you would be complaining that these same kids are out here committing crimes. Your tax dollars? Why does it have to be your tax dollars? You are probably unemployed and on some type of government assistance yourself acting like you actually know where your tax dollars are going. Who really knows where their tax dollars are going. It's not like you get any say in the matter but nevertheless that had to be the most stupidest statement that I have heard on here yet. I hope the girl does sue and get compensated because then maybe they will properly fix that raggedy elevator along with making some upgrades in the dorm itself. These kids pay good money to go to college rather it be grants and loans the money gets paid so there is no need for them to be living in subpar conditions.
