Lawyers for a 2-year-old boy who fell down an elevator shaft at Joliet's Hotel Plaza say they want a court order to stop repairs so they can inspect the elevator.

Surveillance video shows Jayshun Byas getting into the elevator just before his fall in January 2011.

The attorneys tell the Joliet Herald-News they are also requesting repair records and other information, and they plan to use all of the documents in a potential claim for injuries.
