Teen prisoner in Edmonton courthouse custody falls down elevator shaft, dies
Thu Jan 22, 7:55 PM ET

EDMONTON (CP) - A handcuffed 16-year-old boy in the custody of two guards died Thursday after falling about six storeys down an elevator shaft in Edmonton's courthouse.

The boy was wedged between the elevator and the shaft wall. Fire and rescue crews tried to save him but were unsuccessful, said Peter Tadman, spokesman for the Solicitor General. The boy was being escorted to a court appearance from Edmonton's young offenders centre before noon when he fell, Tadman said.

"The young person was being escorted, was standing by the doors of an elevator, the doors opened and he began falling," Tadman said.

"One of the officers reached out and tried to save him but it was unsuccessful, he was gone."

Edmonton police homicide officers were investigating the boy's death and the province has already called a fatality inquiry. Both measures are standard practice when a death occurs in a public building, Tadman said.

The two guards were questioned by police.

"They are being given some counselling. It is just a terrible tragic occurrence. They are shaken to the core," Tadman said.

"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the young man."

Karen Carlson of the Emergency Response Department said early indications were that the fourth-floor elevator doors opened prematurely. The teen stepped in, fell and became wedged between the elevator car and the wall.

Edmonton police spokesman Wes Bellmore stressed that homicide investigators were dispatched because the death was classified as "in custody."

"That in no way implies there's any suspicion of wrongdoing," he said.

Alberta Infrastructure spokesman Mark Cooper said the elevator was last inspected on Dec. 16 and "nothing was found out of the ordinary."

Provincial inspectors were on scene Thursday waiting for a chance to inspect the elevator.

Elevators in Alberta are inspected every second year.

HEllO?

The following all happened in one day...

1. On my way to Mt. St. Louie for a day of boarding I get a ticket for speeding (150 in a 100 zone)... Damn Barrie... I knew I couldn't talk my way out of the situation as soon as the cop called me an 'idiot'...

2. Get to Mt. St. Louie and as I'm parking my fathers car (Infinity Q40, very heavy) it wouldn't stop so I hit a Civic in front of me and launched it 5 - 10 feet forward... I got out of the car inspected the Civic and there was no damage... I guess due to the snow on the ground the car easily bounced off mine without a scratch... There were witnesses around, so to look good I asked one of them for a pen so I can leave a note for the owner of the Civic explaining why his car is now 10 feet forward... As soon as the witnesses left, I decided to switch parking lots (I know, I'm ashamed, but there was no damage)...

3. Same thing happens in the other parking lot, car wouldn't stop and this time I hit a Taurus... No damage was caused once again, and this time a witness came up to me and told me not to worry about it... So I left no note and went boarding...

4. End of the day, come back to the car, my battery is dead... I left the lights on... KARMA...

A cigarette saved my ass yesterday. I went for a smoke (despite the nagging from my girlfriend) and saw that I left my interior lights on in my car. I illegally park in a school parking lot and if my car was there in the morning it would have been towed by the crusty dean.

See? Smoking may save your ass one day.

I guess it wasn't bad luck, just me being careless that day... :D

It means... I'm used to driving much lighter cars that stop on snow... The car I was driving was very heavy, and moving at a speed of 5 - 10km /h I would expect it to stop when I use the breaks... Unfortunately it wouldn't stop... Just kept sliding...

The kid that was handcuffed and died. i guess that's a lesson to anyone who breaks the law. Serves him right. Maybe next time little punk ass bitch teenagers-who drop out of school-go on welfare and steal from the hard working-will not break the law.
