Authorities say four people were injured when an elevator at a Chicago parking garage dropped five floors.

A fire department spokesman says the elevator fell from the 15th to the 10th floor, where it became stuck.


Two of the injured were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, with the other two sent to Advocate Illinois Masonic Center. All were reported in fair to serious, but stable, condition.

Officials say mechanics were on the scene to determine the cause of the mishap. Other elevators in the building on Chicago's North Side continued to operate.
