Whether it’s the lift company’s engineers or emergency services, there will be someone who will rescue you from a broken down elevator. More often than not, it will be the lift engineers who will come, as all you would need to do is press the emergency lift call button, and someone will be on the other end of the line to greet you. It’s rare, but not uncommon for firefighters to arrive and they did just that in this case.

Over in San Antonio, six people were rescued from the Tower of the Americas after the lift failed to work. The lift suddenly stopped working at the restaurant and for 40 minutes, passengers were left stranded. Fortunately, there were no injuries and paramedics arrived to give the passengers a once over. The cause of the malfunctioning lift is still unknown, but hopefully it will be rectified as soon as possible to avoid future occurrences from happening.
