It was a horrific accident that stunned the nation: A young man on his way to work was crushed to death when the elevator he was riding in plummeted to the g round below.
Sam Waisbren was just 30 years old and had his whole life ahead of him. Now, two months after his untimely death, his parents, Laura and Charles, spoke to Inside Edition about living without him.
"Total disbelief. Frankly, still in disbelief," Charles said in the emotional interview. "I talked to him the night before he died, told him I loved him, that I was proud of him."
Tyler Hartfield also took the elevator that morning. He can be seen on surveillance video making it out of the lift just in the nick of time.
"As I was stepping out, I felt the elevator from from underneath my foot. I heard other people in the elevator start screaming. I turned around and saw another man try to get out and get crushed," he said.
A basketball foundation has been established in his name, and be seen here. A GoFundMe account can be seen here.
