Worker Pulled From Yacht Elevator Shaft

Yes, you read that correctly.  I saw this article online recently and did a double take myself.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — A worker was pulled out of an elevator shaft of a mega yacht at a St. Augustine marina on Monday afternoon.  The man fell about 20 feet down the shaft in the yacht in the 400 block of Riberia Street, rescuers said.  It took firefighters about an hour to get him out.  The man was taken to Flagler Hospital in stable condition.  The yacht is called the Harbour Island and is 180 feet long.

We sure hope this gentleman will make a full recovery from the incident.  Safety in and around elevators anywhere are the most important lesson that should be learned from the blog post.

But really.  A yacht with an elevator?  I know you want to see a picture of the yacht, right?
