According to a spokesperson from the New York City Department of Buildings, the man used what is known as a ‘Drop Key’ to open the elevator hoistway doors before his fall.

The man was not authorized to use the ‘Drop Key’, says the Department of Buildings, which is only to be used by Elevator Technicians and Emergency Responders. The DOB has issued a Violation to the owner of the building for ‘Failure to Safeguard the Elevator’. The elevator itself was not found to be defective.
