Willis Tower(Sears Tower) Skydeck Glass Cracks under Tourists’ Feet

In what could have been a nightmare come true, part of the glass floor in a viewing box high above Chicago cracked right below a group of California tourists. But it was apparently much less of a problem than it might have seemed

Alejandro Garibay and his family were taking in the sights at Chicago’s Willis Tower on Wednesday night. The tower’s Skydeck, which opened in 2009, is on the 103rd floor, about 1,353 feet above Chicago’s downtown.

Right before stepping on the glass, Garibay and his family were joking with Willis Tower staff about the safety and durability of the glass.

“They jokingly and confidently responded, ‘It’s unbreakable,’ so we just went on,” Garibay told the NBC affiliate station in Chicago.

 

While on the glass, Garibay heard cracking. He and his family told the staff, who directed them away from the glass box.
