Elevator at one of Chicago's tallest skyscrapers plunges 84 floors after hoist rope breaks

Monday 18:11 GMT

CBS Chicago reported that a broken hoist rope caused the express elevator to malfunction Friday while guests who had just left the Signature Room on the 95th floor rode down toward the lobby.

City inspectors visited the Hancock in 2014 and 2017 for an elevator complaint inspection and a citation was issued for failure to maintain electric elevator equipment.
