A man was apparently crushed to death Thursday by a faulty elevator door in a building next to the Jerusalem International Convention Center, according to medics.
The Magen David Adom rescue service said the man, in his 40s, was found unresponsive next to a freight elevator and declared dead at the scene.
Police investigators were dispatched to the area and a probe has been opened into the incident, a police spokesman said.
Hebrew media reports described the incident as a construction accident.
The incident came two days after a 19-year-old woman was crushed to death by the light rail near the ICC.
