How Safe is Fenway Park after Elevator Accident?

Fenway_Park01

Being one of the older baseball stadiums, Fenway Park clearly shows its age. Recently, an accident involving a 22-year-old female occurred in one of the elevators.

On Friday May 16, Lizzy Scotland, a recent graduate of Boston University, fell two floors down the elevator shaft and landed on top of a stopped elevator on the 2nd floor, knocking her unconscious in the process. Due to an ongoing investigation by Boston Police and Massachusetts Public Safety officials, information is scarce and not being released.

However, an investigation into a “disturbance” in Gate B elevator was initiated after there was noticeable damage to the elevator doors.

Scotland is said to have sustained “serious injuries” and was treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. It is not clear as to what caused the damage, or what kind of disturbance occurred. In the aftermath of the accident, an inspection was conducted of the elevator where officials found the emergency phone, light and a bell all out of order. The elevator was last inspected on Feb. 7, when it was found to be in non-compliance but did not appear to pose a safety hazard to anyone.

Maybe it’s time for John Henry and company to spend a few dollars to upgrade some of the safety features at Fenway Park and not worry as much about charging $9 for a beer.

Let’s hope Lizzy Scotland has a speedy recovery.

Title: Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins contributor Contact: [email protected] I don't know about our readers, but I am and have always been a die hard New England Sports fan. I have lived out of the greater New England area since 2008, so being able to follow Boston sports teams has given me the opportunity to experience a piece of home without actually being there. I completed my undergraduate studies at Hesser College in 2007 prior to moving to the Washington DC area in 2008. I later completed a Master's degree in criminal justice from American Military University, in which field I am currently employed. Despite living in this area for almost 6 years, I can't see myself as a local sports fan. As nice as the Nationals Park is, my heart will always be found at Yawkey way. I am brand new to Sportsofboston.com, and I am looking forward to being an integral part of their mission while being able to cover my favorite sports teams on a regular basis. I look forward to fielding your questions or comments regarding my articles.
