A 5-year-old boy is recovering at UNC Hospitals after a fall down an elevator shaft.

Fisher Hamilton is from Sanford. He fell down the shaft at a beach cottage.

The elevator came down on him, and he has a fractured skull, a broken rib and a broken vertebra, but no brain swelling - which doctors say is a good sign.
