Terrified by the memory of witnessing a co-worker being crushed to death by a falling elevator, a New York City woman is suing her employer and the company responsible for the machine's maintenance.

New York's Daily News reports that Kathleen Mullahy, 36, is incapable of stepping foot in an elevator "out of fear of bodily injury and/or death," according to documents filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
