Elderly man found dead in Denver elevator pushed emergency button twice

Denver resident Isaak Komisarchik, 82 had been missing since July 5. His body was discovered last week in a parking-garage elevator of an apartment complex after residents reported a foul smell

The remains of an elderly man have been found inside an elevator in Colorado, where authorities believe he'd been trapped for a month.

Komisarchik's decomposing body was found August 2, when elevator fix workers discovered the body after multiple residents of the apartment complex reported the stench.

Isaak Komisarchik, 82, died while being stuck in an elevator for nearly an entire month.

Police checked the elevator emergency calls and found the button was pressed twice the morning after Komisarchik disappeared.

Police in Denver are now working to learn why Komisarchik wasn't able to escape the elevator and why authorities weren't notified of the emergency call.

"Something is not right, and police are going to make a determination on what that is", Capt. Greg Pixley, of Denver Fire, said.

Family members said the last time they saw Komisarchik, he was wearing gray pajama trousers and a gray-and-white striped shirt around 2pm on July 5.

Did anyone check the elevator after the emergency button was pushed?

Komisarchik died between the morning of July 6 and August 2 after he was unable to escape an elevator possibly because of dementia. His body was discovered inside a parking-garage elevator at the Woodstream Village apartments

The garage elevator at Woodstream Village was last inspected in December and found to be in good working order, authorities said.

"Staff did check two elevators in response to the notification but not the inoperable elevator, in which his body was found", he said.

The fire department said they didn't receive any emergency calls from that particular elevator auto during the period of time Komisarchik was in it.

The Post reported that in compliance with Denver city code, the elevator vehicle should have had an around-the-clock emergency switch labeled "Alarm", and an intercom system or phone labeled "Help" for those inside to contact security.

MEI Total Elevator Solutions monitors the elevators at the Denver apartment complex, according to the Daily Mail.

The parking garage the elevator was located in had been under renovation. "We are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident with the local authorities".

The cause of Komisarchik's death has not yet been determined, as officials said it's hard to determine when a body is badly decomposed.

Once Isaak Komisarchik was reported missing from the apartment complex, the Denver Fire Department searched five ponds in the area of his home during their rescue efforts.
