I hope everyone here had a nice three day weekend and Fourth of July! We had great weather here in Chicago and the extra day was just great! I actually had little time on Sunday to go to the library, check some books out and read them in the back yard while enjoying on a beer. Now life doesn't get much better than that. Another action packed show today everyone as we cover more accidents relating to elevators and what I hope is the end of them for a while. Oh by the way our e-mail broadcast service seems to be on the fritz. Fifteen e-mails later Godaddy is still working on the problem. As a rule you should check out our website every Wednesday so that you don't miss a show or the important show/story links. (Pictured is the three year old's toe after it was freed from an escalator.)
Thanks to David Cooper who has given me permission to link his research article on our website.
