Workers rescued from elevator at Tower of the Americas - San Antonio Express-News: All three elevators at the Tower of the Americas, where several employees were trapped early Friday in one of the cars about 400 feet in the air, were behind schedule on state-mandated annual inspections, records show.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation sent notices in May to Landry's Inc., the company that operates the city-owned landmark, warning that inspections due in April were late. The licensing department oversees elevator safety.
