Red Sox release statement about injured woman


BOSTON -- The young woman who fell down an elevator shaft at Fenway Park on Friday suffered "serious injuries," according to a release from the Red Sox on Saturday evening, and is being treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

The 22-year-old woman fell two stories and landed on an elevator car shortly after Friday's game, according to media reports, and was unconscious when authorities arrived. It is thus far unclear how she went through the doors.

"The Massachusetts Department of Public Safety and the Boston Police Department are working to determine exactly what happened," the Red Sox's release said. "Due to the ongoing investigation, and out of respect for the family of the young woman who was injured, the Red Sox will have no further comment at this time."
