Man Died Stuck in Elevator After Calling for Help Twice

12 Août 2017

Isaak Komisarchik was reported missing on July fifth.

The decomposed remains of Isaak Komisarchik were discovered inside a parking garage lift by elevator fix workers on Aug 2 after nearby residents complained about the very bad stench, according to The Denver Post.

"How he got in there and when he got in there is obviously what we're trying to figure out", said John White, spokesman for Denver police. Between the morning of July 6 and August 2, Komisarchik is believed to have died after he was unable to escape an elevator, possibly because of dementia. If that's the case, it raises questions about why an elevator company wasn't called. All elevators are required to possess an emergency signaling device labeled "Alarm" next to the floor buttons and operating panel.

Greg Pixley said a criminal investigation confirmed Komisarchik pressed the button, which - per city code - must be monitored at all times.

During an interview with 9 News, the 82-year-old man's daughter, identified only as Yelena, said the last time she saw her dad he was wearing pajama trousers and a striped shirt on the fifth of July.

"He actually walked to the mailbox to pick up the mail and to the office to get some things from there and then he just disappeared", his daughter, Yelena told 9 News. A phone or intercom system labeled "Help" is also mandatory within elevators.

This means less of the box being stacked as Gurley might be able to surprise some defenders with his progress in the passing game. Last season, Gaines struggled in his first year since a foot related injury. "But we also have to let it play", he said.

The calls went to MEI Total Elevator Solutions, which reported them to the apartment complex, Woodstream Village.

She told the station that her father "couldn't take long walks".

Greystar Management Services oversees operations at the Woodstream apartment complex. She added that Komisarchik would sometimes get disoriented. However, police say apartment workers failed to check the parking garage elevator after checking two other elevators in the building.

An elderly Colorado man missing almost a month was found dead in a parking garage elevator last week.

The parking garage served the Woodstream Village apartments in Denver and had been closed for renovations.

An autopsy of Komisarchik has been completed, but the cause and manner of his death are still under investigation, said Steve Castro, a spokesman for the Denver medical examiner. The company said they are now investigating the incident with local authorities.
