Dead at Foot of Elevator Shaft.

Found unconcious at the foot of an elevator shaft in the building of English Walton Leather Company, at the southwest corner of Third and Vine streets, yesterday afternoon, Abraham Slavinsky, 17 years old, of 484 North Fourth street, died shortly after his removal to the Roosevelt Hospital. It is not known how Slavinsky, who is employed in the building, received the injuries which resulted in his death. An investigation by the police led them to believe that the affair was entirely accidental and that the dead man in some manner fell from the third floor of the building to the bottom of the shaft.
