BROOKLYN - A 4-year-old boy who fell 30 feet down an elevator shaft inside a parking garage in Brooklyn has died, according to police.
The boy, whose name is Jack, was rushed to Methodist Hospital where he was listed in critical and then stable condition, but police have confirmed the boy later died.
It happened at 841 Union St. near Seventh Avenue around 8 p.m. Wednesday in Park Slope. Police say they responded to a 911 call for a rescue inside the six-story parking garage.
They say Jack was riding the car-elevator with his parents when he somehow fell between the gap inside the elevator and fell 30 feet below.
The Department of Buildings says it has issued a cease-use order on the elevator to allow further examination.
Police say no charges are expected, and the case is being considered an accident.
However, police say they are still investigating.
