KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Emergency workers won't soon forget the scene: A small boy dangling upside down from the second floor of an elevator shaft.

One of the boy's legs was pinned between the elevator floor and the shaft. He had a head laceration, "with blood," but was conscious and talking to his parents, St. John's fire department Capt. James Ghi said.
