Probe Into Okla. School Elevator Incident Continues

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City school district officials say they're continuing to investigate how three students became trapped under an elevator at the Classen School for Advanced Studies.

In a statement released Wednesday, officials said they're in the process of interviewing students and staff members about Tuesday's incident, and are taking steps to ensure something similar doesn't happen again.

Three girls, ages 12 and 13, were injured when they got under the elevator on the first floor.

An Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman said as the girls were in the shaft, the elevator began lowering onto them. By getting down on their stomachs, they avoided being crushed.

The girls were taken to an Oklahoma City hospital in good condition.

District spokeswoman Tierney Tinnin said she couldn't say whether the girls had been released.
