Woman Trapped in Elevator Dies
By The Associated Press
DES MOINES (AP) - An Ames woman died after being trapped in a hospital elevator for nearly three hours.
The woman finally made it to intensive care and her condition was stabilized, but she died a short time later.
A hospital spokeswoman Irina Bassis said the elevator's brake control board malfunctioned, stranding Sims and staffers between floors.
