Fitzgeralds Elevator Plunges from 26th Floor - Three Injured

Everytime I step on the closet sized parking garage elevator at Binions I pray that I will arrive safely. So far, I'm batting 1.000 - no accidents.

An elevator full of patrons at Fitzgeralds on Sunday afternoon weren't so lucky. A resort elevator made a "hard landing" after plunging from the 26th floor of the Fitz' hotel.

Nine people were aboard the elevator - including a bell hop with a cart full of luggage. The emergency brakes stopped the free fall at the second floor... 30 or so yards from the "end of the line".

Fortunately only three of the elevators occupants were injured in the mishap - hurt backs, elbows and knees.
