Well, this sounds like my worst nightmare. The Washington Post is reporting that ten people were trapped inside the Woodley Park Metro station elevator for about an hour and a half this afternoon. NBC reports that six adults and four children were on board, and one baby suffered respiratory problems.
Anyway, the good news is that everyone was rescued around 4 PM, and everyone is expected to be fine. I’m going to try to pretend this never happened, as I already have an irrational fear of getting trapped in an elevator, and getting stuck in a super-deep one in a Metro station sounds terrifying.
