Management of building where Filipino architect fell probes elevator shaft death

The management of Cyberpark Tower 1 where an architect fell to his death after he mistook an elevator shaft door for a comfort room released a statement saying that it is now conducting its own investigation into the incident.

“The Cyberpark management takes matters like this very seriously and is conducting its own investigation into this highly unusual incident,” the statement read.

It added that it is fully cooperating with authorities in the ongoing investigation.

“Based on initial investigation, two men managed to open an emergency service door of a high-zone elevator shaft and one of them fell into it.

“The area was already dark and most lessees at the floor had already closed shop given it was past operating hours,” the statement further read.

The management, however, did not include in its statement the alleged lack of proper signage.

The victim was identified as Architect Michael Alfonso.

It happened on the second floor of the building while he was looking for a comfort room. But he entered the room where the elevator shaft was located and he fell through down to the basement.

The accident happened around 9 pm last Saturday. He was found on top of the elevator box and was extricated almost 2 hours after the accident.

He was rushed to a hospital but he was pronounced dead moments after arrival.

His kin is still in a state of shock for what happened to Alfonso.

In a Facebook post, a friend of the victim said that the door of the elevator shaft has no lock and that it looked like that of a comfort room.

“Hindi nakalock, and NO SIGNAGE at all. Mukang CR, pero this is an ELEVATOR SHAFT. Nahulog siya 3 floors. Kagagaling lang sa gym akala nya CR. Worse, the building admin even tried to lock him in while waiting for the ambulance. This is 101% NEGLIGENCE. Justice must be served,” said July Sumillano-Uy.
