The Washington Monument had to be evacuated after 3 workers got stuck inside the elevator and several visitors trapped upstairs..
U.S. Park Police said about 50 to 60 visitors and workers were inside the monument when the elevator became stuck Saturday night.
The three workers inside the elevator along with the other visitors on the observation level were safely evacuated from the monument. No one was injured.
This is the latest of issues with the monument’s elevator. The landmark on the National Mall was closed several days this year for repairs to an elevator control box.
The monument reopened in 2014 following damage caused by an earthquake.
