    HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- An elderly man died of a heart attack after he became trapped between an elevator and a security gate in a medical building, authorities said.
    The death of Myron Kafka, 81, was considered accidental, Hallandale Beach spokesman Andrew Casper said.
    Broward County Medical Examiner Joshua Perper said Tuesday that Kafka had been dead at least two days when staff from the building discovered his body on Monday.
    Kafka was trapped in the 14-inch space

    What the heck, two days before he was discovered? That's really sad. Doesn't sound like he had anyone looking after him that carefully. :(

    Wouldn't a cleaning crew have found him the same day? I'm not picturing the space they're talking about.

    I can't really envision it either.

    Oh, gosh. I never thought we'd have another story with Dr. Perper involved!

    Prayers for Mr. Kafka's family.
