COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Presidential candidate Donald Trump had to be rescued from an elevator on Friday afternoon.
The incident happened 30 minutes before the Republican candidate for president was supposed to speak at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Trump was one of 10 people in the elevator at The Mining Exchange Hotel about 1:30 p.m., the Colorado Springs Fire Department told KRDO. The elevator was trapped between the first and second floors of the hotel.
CSFD said crews were able to secure the elevator, open the top hatch and lower in a ladder to allow everyone to climb out.
During Trump’s speech in Colorado Springs, he called out the fire marshal for not letting more people into the building.
