Actor Jesse Spencer, star of the hit NBC series “Chicago Fire,” got trapped in an elevator with several other people on Sunday and had to be rescued by real-life Springfield (IL) firefighters.
Spencer was sightseeing with his parents when they and some other tourists became trapped in the Capitol building’s elevator, according to the Chicago Tribune (http://bit.ly/PmIqoQ). There were reportedly up to 30 people in the elevator.
The actor eventually pried the doors of the elevator open so they could get air in. Finally, after more than a half hour in the crowded conditions, a woman was able to call the Springfield Fire Department. Crews arrived in about 10 minutes.
