One of two Aramark workers injured Saturday in an elevator accident at Citizens Bank Park has died after being removed from life support, Philadelphia police said yesterday.

Police withheld the victim's identity. The second worker, a brother of the victim, remained in an undisclosed hospital, police said.

The accident occurred about 9 a.m. when one of the workers drove a four-wheeled vehicle into an elevator shaft and plunged 30 feet before landing on the elevator car, police said. The accident is under investigation. - Vernon Clark
