This happened before yesterday’s Champions League match between Roma and CSKA Moscow. The accident reportedly injured 24 CSKA fans who were on their way to the match, and one of them is in serious condition.

It’s still not clear what caused the elevator to malfunction, but Roman authorities are investigating.
