Stairwell Signed, Security Staffed At "The BOB" Following Fatal Falls

Stairwell Signed, Security Staffed At

Before they were asked to leave, WOOD TV's crew saw that West Michigan's most notable stairwell was kept from common use for nightclub patrons last night.

Doors to the winding staircase were closed at the basement, main and second levels of The B.O.B. nightclub. A sign posted to each of the doors read: ``Emergency fire exit only'' with security personnel standing at each of the doors not allowing anyone through.

This April 14, Zachary Bunting of Grand Ledge lost his balance and fell to his death in the stairwell while attempting to slide on the railing. In 2009, Tyler Usher of Dorr died after a fall in that corridor.
