Click Here to download ERS-2009-08-05 #168 It’s August already and we are really light on content this week. I have a feeling there are a lot of people going on vacations as summer winds down. There were two articles that are worthy of printing and saving on this weeks show. The first was a tragic news story in which a child was killed in a residential elevator which turns my stomach just thinking about it. The other article talked about a man who was injured back in 2002 by a hydraulic elevator when he tried to figure out why it was leaking hydraulic fluid in the pit. The guy was NOT an elevator mechanic, stupid is as stupid does. Thanks for listening today everyone, be safe out there.
