Sounds like another industry that is due for review/regulation. The whole point of having a home elevator is to provide safe transport between floors without risk of injury (ie falling down stairs).

Thank heavens for the newspaper carrier! How sad. But at least they died together.

What a horrible way to die. Although extremely distasteful and highly inappropriate, if one is able to set aside the tragedy and the fact this couple had people who loved them dearly, your comment is hilarious!

To those who loved these dear people, I'm so sorry for your loss.
