Police: 2 people fall from elevator shaft in Bronx Target store, 1 critical
Two people were injured in an elevator accident at a Target by the Bronx Terminal Market.
The incident began when a 16-year-old and 29-year-old got into an altercation, according to police.
They say the teen was escorted out of the store after he was caught shoplifting and got into a physical fight with the 29-year-old. It is unclear whether the 29-year-old was a security guard at the store.
During the altercation, somehow the two men fell down the elevator shaft. The rescue from the fire department took over one hour.
Firemen had to use ropes to lift the men out of the shaft. The FDNY says both were taken to the hospital. They say one of them is in critical condition, and the other has serious injuries that are not life-threatening.
No other information has been released at this time.
