Alcove crashes into River Walk

This definitely something that you don't want happening on your world-famous tourist attraction.
SAN ANTONIO -- Crews on Monday were removing large chunks of limestone after Saturday's collapse of one of two slabs over an alcove for a decorative fountain on the River Walk, just down from Main Plaza.

Paula Stallcup, director of downtown operations, said the slabs overhead are 8 to 10 feet long, 14 inches tall and about 2 to 3 feet thick.

She said no one was injured.

Stallcup also said an engineer will look into why the collapse occurred as well as make certain the remaining slab is secure.
