This is more than just orange cones, yellow caution tape, or fences, though these are good ways to warn others. It also involves making sure any machines or devices which require maintenance are always adequately cared for and all safety regulations are followed closely. When someone fails in these responsibilities and another person is hurt because of it, it is the negligent party’s responsibility to pay for the victim’s recovery.

A woman was taken to the hospital after falling down an elevator shaft in Boston’s Fenway Park, according to authorities.

Media sources say the woman was leaving the park after a game. The elevator doors opened on the fourth floor, but the elevator itself was still two floors below. When the doors opened, the 22-year-old woman stepped through, only to fall two stories down the shaft onto the roof of the elevator below.

Emergency responders arrived quickly at the scene and shut down the elevator so they could go through the elevator’s emergency hatch and retrieve the unconscious woman, according to the fire department’s social media.

Media sources say the woman was listed in critical but stable condition upon admission to the hospital.
