A Wilmington child is dead after a horrifying accident involving an elevator. It happened Sunday night at a house off Pinfish Lane in Carolina Beach.
According to investigators, the 10-year-old girl was celebrating her birthday with friends at her mother's boyfriend's house when things took a deadly turn.
Investigators say around eight p.m. Sunday night the girl went to play in an elevator that was recently put into the house. Police did not say who pushed the buttons in the elevator but at some point the girl was hanging out of the front, from her shoulders up, when the elevator began to move up to the next floor.
The girl did not get out of the way in time and got crushed.
This is terrible and my heart felt sympathy goes to this little girl's family.
