Accidental Death
Wednesday, 16 March 2016 20:16

On Sunday, March 13, 2016 at about 7:04PM, DPS Police responded to an injured person located at Laulau Bay Golf Resort. An employee was involved in an accident of the hotel elevator shaft. The Victim, a Filipino male, age 59 was found on the ground floor of the elevator shaft with serious injuries. There were obvious signs of death and first responders were unable to conduct resuscitation. Victim was later identified as a maintenance staff of the golf resort.

Preliminary investigation reveals that the victim was conducting elevator maintenance along with another staff member on the service elevator located on the first floor of the resort. The victim was working on repairs and maintenance while the other staff (witness) walked up to the floors above conducting assessments. The witness indicated that the elevator began to go up and noticed that it had stopped on the seventh floor.

There was a sound from inside the elevator shaft that sounded like an object falling and hitting the ground. The witness attempted to call the victim but the victim never responded. The witness ran to the seventh floor where the elevator was located and turned it off at the same calling for assistance.

Based on scene investigation there is a possibility that the victim had then been pinned in and stuck in the shaft causing serious injuries. There is evidence to show the victim fell from a higher elevation to the ground floor deck.

The victim was later extracted from the elevator shaft and transported to the Commonwealth Health Care Corporation by DFEMS where he was pronounced dead by Dr. Florence Shenker at 9:06PM due to injuries. Death has been ruled accidental and remains under investigation.

The preliminary investigation is classified now as an accidental death currently under investigation. DPS will not release the name of the victim pending notification of next of kin.
