The woman who fell into an elevator shaft at Fenway Park on Friday remains in serious condition, according to the Boston Globe.

Elisabeth Scotland, 22, a New Jersey native, fell from the fourth floor onto the roof of the elevator car which was stopped at the second floor, according to the Boston Globe.

“At this time Lizzy continues to receive medical and surgical care and attention at Beth Israel,’’ a family statement said. “Her condition is serious and her prognosis is uncertain.’’

WCVB reported Scotland had graduated from Boston University earlier on Friday.

The incident happened just after the Red Sox-Tigers game Friday night. Scotland, who WBZ reported was at the game with her father, lost consciousness and was rushed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.


State and local officials are investigating.

According to the Boston Globe preliminary reports indicate that “extreme force’’ on the bottom of the elevator door broke the fasteners holding the doors in place, creating the gap through which Scotland fell.
