BOSTON (AP) — A woman in her 30s was killed in an elevator accident in a Boston apartment building, police say.

Police responded to the building in the city's Allston neighborhood just after 5 p.m. Monday for reports of "trauma" in the five-story building, police spokesman John Boyle said.

The building is on Commonwealth Avenue, a major thoroughfare through the city.

Officers found the woman in the elevator on the first floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name was not made public.

A second person was taken to the hospital suffering from shock, but was not physically hurt, police said.

The death remains under investigation and police are looking at surveillance video from inside the building.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is also investigating, police said.
