Midtown Elevator Worker Found Electrocuted

Authorities are investigating the death of an elevator mechanic who was electrocuted while working in a Manhattan office building last night.

Investigators say Ed Bradley, 44, got a deadly jolt around 9:30 p.m. while working in an elevator machine room on the ninth floor of the Axa Equitable building on Sixth Avenue in Midtown.

Emergency responders found his body lying near live wires.

"When we arrived on the scene there was an individual in cardiac arrest. The cause of the injuries were not determined. There still under investigation right now," said FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Hodgens.

Bradley, an employee of the Schindler Group, routinely worked on elevators in the building.

The Department of buildings and OSHA are investigating the incident.
