BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport residents at an independent living complex say their buidling's elevator has been out of order since before Christmas.

Residents say that some people that live at Hall Commons Equal Housing Opportunity Complex at 55 George Picken Way cannot take the stairs.

On Monday, EMT workers had to carry a woman down the stairs when she wasn't feeling well.

Building maintenance workers say they are working on a fix. They say that part of the delay was due to the fact that residents did not report the problem immediately.
