An accident involving an elevator occurred over the weekend in Downers Grove, northeast of Cedar Rapids. A man was pushed against an elevator door, causing it to collapse inward.
The man fell 7 stories to his death in the accident. Officials say that the door never should have given way and that something went wrong with it. However, it is currently unclear what that was. The elevator was in compliance with safety regulations at the time of the accident.
