EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - -

Broken elevators are forcing some residents of an East St. Louis apartment building to sit outside in the heat.

Several residents of the building located on Waverly Avenue said they rely on the elevator because they have disabilities. They also said it is second elevator in the building to break down in the span of a month.

“You have to understand, we have people here with wheelchairs. You have a woman who just got out of the hospital. I live on the 11th floor and I had three surgeries done on my knee, I can’t make it to the 11th floor,” said one resident.

Many residents said the situation has forced them to sit outside in the heat. No accommodations have been made to help those residents get back into their apartments.
