Firefighters save three trapped in Kennedy Center elevator

D.C. firefighters on Sunday rescued two adults and a child from a stalled elevator in the Kennedy Center.

There was a different kind of show Sunday afternoon at the Kennedy Center, where D.C. firefighters rescued three people stuck in a stalled elevator.

Firefighters reported the stalled elevator around 1 p.m. 

The elevator was stuck midway in the shaft below terrace level, so firefighters had to rappel down to lift people out.

By about 2 p.m. they rescued the two adults and child.

"All are in excellent condition and had quite an adventure being hauled to safety," the firefighters tweeted.

They also shared a video from the rescue. Check it out:
