I keep seeing people crowding an elevator without the least concern that it might be overloaded. Maybe only 0.1% of crowded elevator will have an accident, but you never know when and where that will happen.

Sad story as well as very sob. In these neighborhoods where people pay high rents and mortgages, where most of the residents are not from NYC, most have degrees from top universities or attend ivy leagues and own iphones. When I'm in the elevator with these folks I don't go into them and prefer to ride alone or ride with a small crowd. These folks are not too smart or bright and overload the elevator like its an subway car. I remember one instance I got out of an overloaded elevator before it made its descent and all I heard was ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Again this happened in an hip area in Chelsea. In these neighborhoods where folks have the best college degrees and amazing sophisticated jobs, folks are not to bright or educated about how elevators work. First read the signs and about weight on elevator capacities when entering. Some needs to voice out and say, hey guys elevator is a bit crowded. I don't think management company, or elevator company is out fault for this accident.

Me either. Common sense should tell people, hey the elevator is a bit crowded. Can a couple of people kindly get off and wait for the next trip. That is all that I'm saying. Packing and elevator like if it's an L train at Union square is not a very bright idea.
