Only for a mere five minutes, the elevator froze in motion while a woman was inside however the hiccup did not last as the elevator returned to its usual working state before Avon Village Police could even respond.
“The elevator stopped working for a period of five minutes but before we could even get there the elevator was working fine and the woman was out and unharmed,” said Gary Benedict, Village of Avon Police Chief.
According to Benedict, no issues have been reported about the elevator prior to this incident.
The name of the woman was not released by the Village Police Department.
Mary Blye, Water Clerk, who was present in the building at the time of the incident refused to make a comment.
