Two construction workers were injured Wednesday August 6th, 2014, in Greenwich Village when elevator cables snapped, causing the elevator to drop half a floor. The workers were part of a 12-apartment renovation at the 56 West 11th St. apartment building.

According to reports, the workers had opened up the elevator car's ceiling hatch and had pushed pipes through the hatch.  When the pipes got tangled in the cables it caused the cables to snap.
