EGYPTIAN AUTHORITIES PROBE ELEVATOR FALL THAT KILLED 7


Authorities in Egypt are demanding a police investigation of a January 30 elevator fall at Banha University Hospital in Banha, Egypt, in which seven people, all members of the same family who were visiting their hospitalized grandmother, died, Egypt Independent reports. A report from the Manpower Ministry's Occupational Safety and Health Administration found the main wire operating the elevator was damaged. The elevator had been previously cited by the Occupational Safety Management Department for lack of periodical maintenance. Hospital and university officials said the elevator had been under contract with a maintenance company since 2015.
