    Worker peering into elevator shaft decapitated

    PITTSBURGH - A construction worker was decapitated by an elevator car Thursday as he peered into a freight-elevator shaft, police said.

    The accident happened at the site of a nine-story former warehouse that is being converted into 140 apartments for students at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

    The 44-year-old man, whose name was not released, was employed by a subcontractor that was doing work for Massaro Corp.

    Massaro Corp. president Joseph Massaro III said the elevator operator did not know the man was peering into the shaft. Workers at the site use walkie-talkie-type phones to communicate with each other, Massaro said.

    After I read the title, I thought he deserved it for urinating into the elevator shaft. Then I saw it said peering :doah:

    I dont see where it said if he lived or died.

    But seriously, I guess we shouldn't joke too much about a guy heading to a closed casket funeral.

    That's funny! Of course if you slow down and actually READ the titles you would have seen that it said peering! Well, that's what I told myself when I thought the exact same thing you did. :haha: :D :haha: :D
