A 12-year-old girl has fallen down an elevator shaft in Lower Manhattan.

She fell from the lobby to the sub-basement which is believed to be one or two stories.

The girl suffered a broken arm.

She was taken to Bellevue hospital where she is expected to be okay.

Residents of the building use a key to open the elevator door.

The babysitter who was with the girl, used the key to open the door prior to the elevator arriving at the lobby.

The girl stepped into the shaft and fell two floors to the sub basement.
