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.

The Daily Feed, WMATA, WTF?!


Bra on Metro Elevator

Someone must have partied especially hard in the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro elevator on Saturday afternoon, as evidenced by this bra left on the trash-strewn elevator floor. I’d have picked it up (hey, free bra) but it was a bit damp and muddy, and not my cup size anyway.
