‘Elsa’ pushes Boston police vehicle out of snowbank

BOSTON -- Get out your "Frozen" jokes.

Someone wearing an Elsa costume helped free a Boston police van from snow piled up at the side of the street Tuesday night.

The incident took place near a bar as a nor'easter wound down.

The video was posted on Facebook by Christopher Haynes.

After pushing for a minute or so, the transport van was finally freed from its slushy prison.

People inside the bar can be heard cheering Elsa on. One man stepped up to help near the end of the ordeal.

Once the truck was on its way, "Elsa" curtseys for the crowd in the bar.

"I bought this costume last year during a snowstorm because I thought it would be hilarious to walk around Boston in an 'Elsa' costume during a snowstorm," Elsa (secret identity withheld) told WTIC on Tuesday night.

"It turns out I was correct, it is really funny to walk around Boston in an 'Elsa' costume during a snowstorm."

"I saw the police paddy wagon started to get stuck and so I just ran outside to help push it out of the snow," Elsa said. "I really didn't think it would be a 'thing.'"

"If any of you know Ellen [DeGeneres], I want to come on her show, but only if Adam Rippon is there," Elsa quipped.
