Boston police, firefighters, and Emergency Medical Services responded late Friday night to Fenway Park for a report of a woman who fell down an elevator shaft, police said.
The woman was seriously hurt, the Associated Press reported Saturday morning.
Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said the accident occurred when the elevator shaft doors on the fourth floor opened unexpectedly. The woman fell into the shaft and landed on the roof of the elevator, he said. She was found on top of the elevator on the second floor at Gate B, MacDonald said. The call at 24 Yawkey Way came in at 11:16 p.m.
It was unclear if one or both of the elevator’s doors opened.
Power was shut off to the elevator, and firefighters entered at the second floor, he said. A ladder was used to go through the roof hatch and remove the woman just before midnight.
She was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
A state elevator inspector was called to the scene.
One of the park’s elevator operators said he heard a thud after the woman fell.
The Red Sox said in a statement that the woman was injured in an elevator accident after the game against the Tigers.
