Racine man died after falling down an elevator

The family of a Racine man who died after falling down an elevator shaft in Milwaukee says his death comes just two days after the birth of his son. Thirty-two-year-old Anthony Azarian was working in the Coakley building in downtown Milwaukee when he and the skid steer he was operating fell down a seven-story elevator shaft. Azarian was part of a well-known family business in Racine, Azarian Wrecking. His death was the second time the Azarian family had experienced tragedy at a work site. In 2000, Azarian’s uncle, Tony Azarian, was killed in a trench collapse while on the job in Caledonia.
