According to police, fire crews were on the scene of a blaze inside a commercial building at 310 High Street when a firefighter fell down the elevator shaft.
Six people were temporarily trapped in a Tropicana Casino elevator when it malfunctioned around 3:45 a.m. Saturday morning, according to Atlantic City police.
“We thought it was going to be a five minute thing–they would push a button, and it would just start. Nobody thought we would be in there for four hours,” said Vanessa Olbrecht.
The unidentified man was reportedly celebrating his 25th birthday Friday night when he tried to take the elevator from his 5th story apartment to meet friends on the first floor of 701 Chestnut Street.
