Elevator Swallows, Kills Wheelchair Man

Detroit police are investigating the death of a man who fell down an elevator shaft Monday.

Police said a 58-year-old in a motorized wheelchair was waiting for the elevator in a building on Washington Street.

Witnesses told police when the doors to the elevator opened, the man's wheelchair went forward -- but the elevator was not there.

The man fell eight floors down and died as a result of his injuries. An investigation is under way.
