New York Widow Sues over Husband’s Death at Shea Stadium

June 22, 2009

A Brooklyn family is suing the Mets, the city and two elevator companies over a fatal escalator accident at Shea Stadium.

Antonio Narainasami died in April of 2008 after falling over an escalator railing and tumbling several stories. He was 36.

His widow is suing in Queens Supreme Court. The suit says the escalator was too steep and its railing was too low.

A lawyer for the city called the case “tragic.”

Shea Stadium was demolished to make way for the new Citi Field this year.

Its escalators were involved in several serious accidents, including at least one other fall death in 1985.
