Horror: Boston Woman Crushed To Death In Apartment Elevator
Horror in Boston as a college professor was crushed to death in an elevator accident in the building where the woman had just moved.
A Boston woman was crushed to death in a gruesome elevator accident in her apartment building on Monday. Another resident who witnessed the Boston University lecturer’s death was taken to the hospital as a result of a brutal panic attack after seeing such horror.
Carrie O’Connor had moved into the apartment building just a few weeks prior to her sudden death. The 38-year-old had been teaching French at colleges in the Boston area since 2014.
The older style elevator had been inspected this year but that didn’t protect Carrie O’Connor from a horrific death.

Large Package May Have Tripped Sensor
She was carrying a large package or mattress up to her apartment. Authorities believe that it triggered a sensor which forced the old elevator to fall.
From The NY Post:
What my wife said she saw was the lady’s arms like hanging onto her package,” building resident Eric Carmichael told the local FOX-TV affiliate of the Monday evening horror that killed French lecturer Carrie O’Connor, 38.
A man who witnessed the accident had to be taken to the hospital for trauma.
“I heard someone that was bringing in a package out in the hallway, and then I heard an ungodly scream,” resident Leanne Scorzoni told the ABC-TV affiliate.
“Then we ran out into the hallway, and we saw a gentleman who was obviously in distress. He was screaming and hyperventilating, saying, ‘She’s dead! She’s dead!’ ”

Scorzini said the man “was helping [O’Connor] with a box into the building, and he was going up the stairs, and he had told her, ‘Hey, just be careful,’ because … you have to pull the door across and then step in and then press the button.”
