A New Jersey woman who fell down an elevator shaft at Fenway Park remained in serious condition Tuesday at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, according to a statement her family released through the hospital.

“At this time Lizzy continues to receive medical care and surgical care and attention at Beth Israel,” the family said. “Her condition is serious and her prognosis is uncertain.”

Lizzy Scotland, 22, of Brigantine, N.J., suffered serious injuries and lost consciousness in the fall from the fourth floor to the top of the elevator car, stopped on the second floor Friday. Boston police and officials from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security said they are investigating.


Preliminary reports indicate “extreme force” on the bottom of the elevator door broke the fasteners holding it in place, creating the gap through which Scotland fell, state officials said Monday.
