A woman was killed in an elevator accident in Boston Monday evening.
Emergency teams flooded the area in front of the building shortly after 5 p.m. on Monday. At the scene, authorities told Boston 25 that they had responded to reports of a woman captured.
Eric Carmichael’s wife heard their calls for help.
“She heard a woman in need and tried to help her as a neighbor,” said Carmichael.
Carmichael says his wife saw the woman try to put a package in the elevator.
“The lady tried to put a package in the elevator, that’s how we do it,” said Charmichael.
The police later removed a large and long brown box from the building. They pushed it forward first, leaned it against a mailbox, and then took it away.
The victim, who was only identified as a woman in her thirties, has not yet been identified. The circumstances of her death are still unknown. It wasn’t immediately clear whether she lived in the building or was an employee at work.
