A 6-week-old girl in a stroller died Thursday after she fell down an elevator shaft inside the Brooklyn building where her family lives, officials said.
Little Areej Ali fell from the 23rd floor of the Sea Rise apartments on Neptune Ave. near W. 37th St. in Coney Island about 10:30 a.m., officials said. She landed on the top of the elevator eight stories below.
The victim’s mom told police the stroller fell in when the elevator doors suddenly opened as she waited for the lift.
Little Areej was rushed to Coney Island Hospital but could not be saved, officials said.
