美国狱警在制服罪犯过程中,不幸撞开电梯层门双双坠亡!

    去年7月份美国狱警在制服罪犯过程中,不幸撞开电梯层门双双坠亡!近日狱警父亲将电梯相关企业告上法庭!
    事情的简单经过:2016年7月18日,罪犯Gilliam与其他狱警在对质时发生争吵,进而发展到身体上的冲突,该狱警按下监狱内的报警装置,其他狱警马上赶来增援,其中就包括Kristopher Moules。Kristopher Moules和Gilliam扭打在一起,不幸撞开了5楼的电梯层门,结果双双坠落,砸在停在一楼的电梯轿厢顶当场死亡。这一幕与2015年1月24发生的“河南滦县医院医生与患者同伴扭打坠落电梯井死亡”事故多么相似啊!



    Kristopher Moules25岁,在家人和朋友眼中非常阳光的大男孩

    罪犯Gilliam27岁,劣迹斑斑,曾强奸了一名14岁女孩

    事发监狱Luzerne County Prison已使用近百年,各项设施陈旧

    近日狱警Kristopher Moules的父亲将电梯相关企业告上法庭。【武星军注:为了告诉大家媒体报道的事实,又不至于对相关企业造成不必要的误会,我这里企业的名称就不直接翻译出来了!】
    Kristopher Moules父亲在诉状中指控的四家企业分别是:
    电梯维保公司:Schindler Elevator Corp,该公司与监狱签订了维保合同,这些年一直负责监狱电梯的维保;
    配件公司:Inventio AG,该公司是Schindler的子公司,负责向Schindler提供电梯配件;
    制造企业:Otis Elevator Co,该公司负责该电梯的设计、制造和安装等。事故电梯安装于1986年,并于1994年和2001年进行过改造。
    检验机构:Nagle Elevator Inspection and Testing LLC,该机构负责对电梯的安全检验。

    Kristopher Moules父亲在诉状中指控的主要事实是【武星军注:这里是原告提出的事实,被告未必认同,法庭最终也未必认可】:
    1. 在事发前,电梯门曾经多次出现问题,而上述被告并未进行认真调查或进行修理,或者采取其它的纠正措施。
    2. 配件公司Inventio AG提供的层门滑块尺寸太小,其不到将层门保持在层门地坎中的作用。
    3. 根据维保合同,Schindler Elevator Corp应确保电梯安全可靠运行,在更换部件时必须采用原制造单位的部件。而在更换事故电梯的层门滑块时,维保单位并没有采用原厂的滑块,而是更换了更便宜的滑块。同时对层门滑块的固定也没有采用合适的紧固螺丝appropriate metal fastening screws,而是采用了便宜的螺丝cheap drywall screws。【武星军注:这两个screws大家看看有没有更合适的翻译】
    4. 检验机构Nagle Elevator Inspection and Testing LLC的检验走马观花,与行业的惯例及标准严重不符,对于如此明显的缺陷都没有发现。
    5.Otis Elevator Co在2001年对电梯进行改造时,没有安装所有合适和必要的安全装置。【武星军注:我估计是指当时没有安装层门保持装置,该方面内容可参考:我国是否可以考虑借鉴美国的做法要求电梯加装层门安全保持器呢?】

    中国已经发生了许多起全世界都关注的电梯事故,而几乎没有一起是通过法庭最终解决的!让人不禁感慨我们在法治道理上还有很长的路要走。。。

  Inmate's access to elevator led to death of Pa. CO

  The fight between a correctional officer and an inmate that led to them plummeting down an elevator shaft to their deaths earlier this week began as a dispute over the inmate’s access to the elevator, prosecutors said Friday.

  Correctional Officer Kristopher Moules, 25, of Larksville, and inmate Timothy Darnell Gilliam Jr., 27, of Wilkes-Barre, died after falling nearly 60 feet when they burst through the elevator door during a scuffle Monday evening.

  Kenneth Moules, of Larksville, who is Kristopher’s father and administrator of the estate, filed the litigation against four entities:

  • Inventio AG, a subsidiary of Schindler also in Morristown, that creates, produces and supplies elevator parts for Schindler. The elevator door was equipped with a “wholly inadequate” and “undersized” guide/gibs — devices that help keep elevator doors in their tracks — which “played a direct role” in the failure of the door.

  • Under its contract, Schindler was required to keep the elevator in safe and reliable operating condition, use original equipment manufacturer’s parts and provide a written maintenance program tailored to specific building and environment needs. Schindler did not use an appropriate Otis guide/gib and instead opted for a “cheap replacement part as a cost-saving measure.”. It also accused Schindler of using “cheap drywall screws” to attach the guide/gib to the door instead of the appropriate metal fastening screws.

  • Nagle Elevator Inspection and Testing LLC in Lake Ariel, which was required at the time of the deaths and years prior to perform periodic prison elevator safety inspections mandated by state law. The plaintiff accuses Nagle of failing to discover “blatant deficiencies” with the elevator and performing “inadequate” inspections that were “contrary to industry custom, standard and practice.”

  • Otis Elevator Co., handled replacement of the elevator around 1994 and an elevator modernization, refurbishing and/or overhauling around 2001. It did not ensure all appropriate and necessary safety equipment was installed in the elevator when it handled the elevator modernization around 2001, the complaint said.

  Dozens of elevator accidents have taken place in China and aroused worldwide attention and concerns, while none of these could be settled within court rulings. We couldn’t deny the fact that ruling by law in elevator industry is still a long way off.
