MANHATTAN — A person was hospitalized after plunging three floors inside an elevator at a building in Sutton Place Wednesday, officials said.

The elevator fell into the basement of 19 Sutton Place, near Sutton Square, with a single individual inside just after 4 p.m., the FDNY said.

The victim's condition was unknown, but the individual was conscious before being taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, the FDNY said.

The residential building is a four-story single home built in 1899, records show.

The building's owner could not be reached for comment.
