10/23/13-Space Tower Update:

Yesterday another body was found in the rubble.  Initial reports are saying that the bodies were found close to what used to be the stairs in the collapsed towers.  It also seems the inspector who granted the construction permits was not exactly on top of his game.  The inspector did not pass his examination to be reelected.  The examination is to test basic knowledge of the job requirements.  So in order to grant construction permits one must be somewhat knowledgeable about construction and engineering I would assume.  What a shame!
