A Manhattan building superintendent was killed Wednesday while working on an elevator.

Fire officials were called to a mid-rise office building on Park Avenue South just before 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

That's where they say they found the victim, who appeared to have fallen.

Officials say they're treating the death as accidental.

One neighbor said that the victim was well known.

NY1 reached out to the building's owner, but did not get a comment.

The Department of Buildings said that it had no complaints on file regarding elevators at the site, and said that there's no active construction going on.
