    There are more than 5,000 elevators and escalators with expired permits in San Diego. NBC 7's Mark Mullen has more. (Published Thursday, June 13, 2019)

    Through the California Public Records Act, NBC 7 Investigates requested data from the California Department of Industrial Relations on all elevator and escalators operating in San Diego County.
