Elderly man stuck in elevator for almost a month found dead

Elderly man stuck in elevator for almost a month found dead

A missing elderly man who authorities discovered dead in an elevator at a Denver apartment complex last month may have reached out for help by pressing the elevator's emergency button.

The decomposed remains of Isaak Komisarchik were discovered inside a parking garage lift by elevator fix workers on Aug 2 after nearby residents complained about the terrible stench, according to The Denver Post.

Komisarchik had pushed the emergency button in the elevator auto twice during an 8-minute span on July 6, but didn't receive a response, according to the paper.

"Staff did check two elevators in response to the notification but not the inoperable elevator, in which his body was found", he said. Komisarchik may have not been able to continue his efforts to escape from the broken elevator due to dementia.

Denver Fire Department spokesman Capt Greg Pixley said detectives are now trying to determine why no one responded.

Komisarchik had not been seen since he left a nearby nursing facility on the afternoon of July 5.

Authorities determined that Komisarchik pushed the emergency button twice on July 6 at 9.09am and 9.17am, and got no response.

Guardiola: I'm so happy with this Man City squad
The manager said he is building for the future and has since signed goalkeeper Ederson, Bernardo Silva , Kyle Walker and Danilo. However, Barcelona are unlikely to want to sell another of their key players, especially after Neymar's move to PSG last week.

The garage elevator at Woodstream Village was last inspected in December and found to be in good working order, authorities said. If that's the case, it raises questions about why an elevator company wasn't called.

The Post reported that in compliance with Denver city code, the elevator auto should have had an around-the-clock emergency switch labeled "Alarm", and an intercom system or phone labeled "Help" for those inside to contact security.

The elevators at the apartment complex are monitored by MEI Total Elevator Solutions monitors. Greystar Management Services oversees Woodstream Village operations.

However, the parking-garage where Komisarchik was found had been closed for renovation.

The investigation remains ongoing, authorities said.

Once Isaak Komisarchik was reported missing from the apartment complex, the Denver Fire Department searched five ponds in the area of his home during their rescue efforts.

An autopsy of Komisarchik has been completed, but the cause and manner of his death are still under investigation, said Steve Castro, a spokesman for the Denver medical examiner.
