preventable elevator death

Editorial: "Here's Who To Blame In The Elevator Accident That Killed A Y&R Exec"

My name is Dan Zeitz. I am the Operations Manager and Safety Director for Midwest Elevator is St. Louis, Missouri. As New York recently learned (, jumper left behind accidents are a very dangerous, and potentially lethal, problem. I invented, patented and brought to market, a jumper which would prevent the very scenario which killed the Y&R Exec. This product has been available through Wurtec Industries for two years. I created this jumper to eliminate the unnecessary loss of life and serious injuries which occur through human error or negligence.

I thought you should be aware that a safety device existed which could have prevented this tragedy. Please, let's prevent another injury/death.
