A man died when an elevator suddenly dropped in a Manhattan building Thursday morning, crushing him.

Authorities say the victim was getting off in the lobby of the Manhattan Promenade building on Third Avenue in Kips Bay just before 8:30 a.m. when the elevator malfunctioned.

He reportedly became trapped between the elevator car and a shaft wall and was crushed.

Firefighters tried to rescue him, but the victim -- identified as 30-year-old building resident Samuel Charles Waisbren -- was pronounced dead at the scene.
