BROOKLYN - A Queens man was killed in an elevator accident in a Williamsburg apartment building early Friday morning.

Police say officers responded to multiple 911 calls inside 156 Hope St. at around 4:20 a.m. They arrived to find 37-year-old Eran Modan unconscious and unresponsive with visible trauma to the head and body.

EMS arrived shortly after and pronounced Modan dead at the scene.
