    Boston authorities are attempting to piece together what exactly happened late Friday night when a fan at Fenway Park was critically injured after falling two floors down an elevator shaft and landing on the top of the elevator car at Gate B in right field. BOSTON - Police and state inspectors are trying to determine why an elevator door at Boston's Fenway Park was open before a woman plunged two stories down the elevator shaft after a game, officials said Saturday. Initial reports say the door unexpectedly opened and a 22-year-old woman fell into the shaft and landed on the elevator car which was reportedly occupied at the time. Power to the elevator was shut off, and firefighters climbed through the elevator's emergency hatch to reach the woman, who was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, MacDonald said. Edes also added that reports he'd heard suggested the fan had her back to the doors when they opened. The Red Sox said in a brief statement that the team would have no comment on the incident because of the ongoing investigation and out of respect for the woman's family.
