After Friday night's loss to the Tigers, a 22-year old woman fell two stories down a Fenway Park elevator shaft—sustaining serious injuries. Reportedly, police and state inspectors spent the weekend investigating the mishap—but as yet there has been no word on the cause. The Red Sox have gone into a protective 'cone of silence' since the incident, claiming, "Due to the ongoing investigation, and out of respect for the family of the young woman who was injured, the Red Sox will have no further comment at this time." The woman—reportedly a recent college graduate—was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with serious injuries. According to, "a team source" said the woman was "leaning back" against the fourth floor elevator doors, when they opened and she fell down the shaft to the second level.
