CBP Worker Drives Golf Cart Down Elevator Shaft

Prior to the Phillies/Pirates game on Saturday night, two Citizens Bank Park employees were seriously injured when one of the men drove a stadium golf cart into an open elevator shaft and plummeted onto the elevator car below, critically injuring himself and the man who was inside the elevator.

According to Phillies.com, an Aramark employee (the food service at CBP) who worked in the area said the driver had been intentionally riding the cart into the freight elevator door while waiting for it to open. When it did, his coworker said, the driver couldn’t brake in time, and the cart fell an estimated 30 feet onto the elevator below.

“A person up on the upper level in a four-wheel cart like a gator cart, somehow drove into the elevator to go down, went through the gate and landed on top of the elevator,” Phillies Public Relation Larry Shenk said.

“The door’s approximately seven-foot wide and the cart was big enough to hit it and somehow open the door and the cart went through,” L&I Dep. Commissioner Dominic Verdi said.

One of the strangest subplots to the story was the man who fell and the man inside the elevator were also brothers. Both were immediately rushed to University of Pennsylvania hospital. The employee who fell is in critical condition while his brother is listed in stable condition.

    So two idiot brothers were f’in around with each other in a boneheaded and dangerous fashion, that led to a serious and, ultimately, stupid injury. I’m absolutely shocked that this was an incident that took place in Philadelphia. Shocked I tell you.

    Sad news – the cart’s driver ended up dying from his injuries.
