Product Recall: Residential Hydraulic Elevators Recalled Due to A Child’s Catastrophic Brain Injury

The “Residential Hydraulic Elevator” sold exclusively by Coastal Carolina Elevators has been recalled as it is now known that the elevator will operate while the gate door is open, posing a devastating crushing hazard.

The elevators have a manual accordion-style car gate door with vinyl laminate inserts and a control panel.  So far three reports of incidents have been received, one a serious injury which resulted in a catastrophic brain injury of a 10-year-old boy from Baltimore, MD.

Free repairs are being offered to consumers who own one of these elevators.
