A Midtown Manhattan office building remains closed Monday following a deadly elevator accident.

The building, at 285 Madison Avenue, has been closed since last Wednesday's incident as investigators tried to figure out what happened.

Advertising executive Suzanne Hart, 41, was crushed to death when the car she was entering rose suddenly.

Officials say workers were doing electrical work on the elevator hours before. That electrical work is now the focus of the investigation.
