A Brigantine woman, who was celebrating her college graduation, was injured Friday when she fell two stories in an elevator shaft at Boston’s Fenway Park.

Lizzy Scotland, 22, was at the game with her father after graduating earlier in the day from Boston University.

Our thoughts are with her and the Scotland family during this difficult time.

Here is more on Friday night’s accident in a report from the Boston Globe

“State elevator inspectors were at Fenway Park Saturday, trying to determine how a 22-year-old woman fell two stories down an elevator shaft late Friday night.

The victim was with other people when she fell from the fourth floor and landed on top of the elevator car, which was stopped on the second floor, Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said.

Reached by phone Saturday night, relatives of the victim, Lizzy Scotland of Brigantine, N.J., thanked the public for their concern and asked for prayers and privacy while they focus on her recovery. Scotland’s name was first reported by WBZ-TV.

Authorities received a call reporting the fall at 11:17 p.m., after the Red Sox game had ended. The plunge knocked the victim unconscious, McDonald said, and she was not responsive when firefighters arrived to extricate her.

She was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in serious condition. The hospital said Saturday afternoon that it could not give an update on her condition.

“It remains to be seen how she went through the doors on the fourth floor,” MacDonald said. “We don’t know if both doors opened, or one door opened, or if the bottom of the door gave way and she fell through that spot. We’re looking at all the equipment.”
