The Elevator Wouldn't Go All The Way To The Top
The tower at Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport was
evacuated Friday night after electrical problems stranded two
controllers in the elevator.
The two controllers were in the elevator at 2150 local when the
lift stopped and the tower began to fill with smoke. There was no
fire -- however, the tower crew was evacuated as a precaution.
Firefighters combed the structure, but found no fire. No flights
were affected as a result of the scare and controllers were allowed
back into the tower at 2305. No one was hurt.
As for the unfortunate controllers, they were stuck in the
elevator for about an hour before they were rescued by
