“…Jorr had received a call Tuesday morning from her disabled friend who lived at the home and was expecting Harrison for a visit. She never showed.

“I thought, oh, good, she made it,” Jorr, 64, recalled Thursday.

The relief didn’t last long. A moment later, Jorr found Harrison pinned under a mechanical lift used to gain access to the elevated house’s upper floors. The 66-year-old was unresponsive. Paramedics arrived and pronounced her dead.

An autopsy confirmed that the lift crushed her to death, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said.

Under Florida law, lifts and other conveyances in private homes do not require certificates of operation or inspections. There was no electrical permit issued, as required, for the Blairs’ device… The elevator also lacked…required safety switches…”
