WFLX – Century Village Elevator Death

Monday, May 11, 2009

A worker has been crushed to death by an elevator at the West Palm Beach Century Village, authorities said.

About 10:20 this morning, 39-year-old Jason William Moyer, of West Palm Beach, was killed as he repaired an elevator at the Dover B unit of the complex, near Okeechobee Boulevard and Florida’s Turnpike, Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Capt. Don DeLucia said.

The elevator came down on Moyer while he was in the shaft, deputy Eric Davis, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office, said this morning. He said Moyer was dead at the scene.

Marilyn Ducati, who lives on the second floor of the four-story building said she didn’t hear anything at the time of the accident and had not known about it.

An investigator for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration arrived about 2 p.m. from OSHA’s area office in Fort Lauderdale, area director Darlene Fossum said.

Moyer was employed by Xpert Elevator Services in Loxahatchee. Calls to the company’s office and a cell phone weren’t immediately returned.

OSHA records do not show any agency action or investigations of the company. Corporate records show it was incorporated in May 2007.

According to a state Department of Business and Professional Regulation report, the elevator that fell failed a private inspection on Feb. 25, 2008. During a follow-up review, the state agency cited the owner of the elevator for not having a current license and told the owners that they must show proof of a current inspection.
