Colorado man found dead in elevator called for help twice

Colorado man found dead in elevator called for help twice

In an investigation from ABC News affiliate, Channel 7, law enforcement discovered Komisarchik had pressed the elevator's emergency alarm twice on July 6, but no aid was given.

The newspaper goes on to report that the elevator shaft Komisarchik was found in was actually one not in use due to renovations in the parking garage and deemed "inoperable". A multitude of residents had reportedly complained about the smell coming from the elevator area but maintain nothing was done to investigate or eliminate the odor.

Authorities said a criminal investigation confirmed Komisarchik pressed the emergency button twice, according to the Denver Post. She added that Komisarchik would sometimes get disoriented. "We are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident with the local authorities".

Komisarchik's disappearance prompted the distribution of missing persons posters a search of five ponds near the apartment complex by firefighters to try to find him.

However, the parking-garage where Komisarchik was found had been closed for renovation.

Denver's elevator code requires elevator operators to monitor emergency notifications around the clock.

That step is expected Monday but won't come as a surprise to the Beijing government. It was not immediately clear whether he was talking about trade was the subject.

John White, a spokesman for Denver police, said: 'How he got in there and when he got in there is obviously what we're trying to figure out'.

The medical examiner has not yet released Isaak Komisarchik's official cause of death. The garage elevator at Woodstream Village was last inspected in December and found to be in good working order, Pixley said. Elevator fix workers found the body.

The fire department said they didn't receive any emergency calls from that particular elevator auto during the period of time Komisarchik was in it.

The Post reported that in compliance with Denver city code, the elevator vehicle should have had an around-the-clock emergency switch labeled "Alarm", and an intercom system or phone labeled "Help" for those inside to contact security.

He said they are working to determine "how he got in there and when he got in there". When the lieutenant pushed the button, the elevator door opened, Pixley said.

Fire officials reveal they did not receive any emergency calls from that elevator, but MEI Total Elevator Solutions, which operates the unit shares that they did receive a call.
