Nine female students were trapped in an elevator for about 45 minutes in Stimson College on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
“There were no injuries and no one was removed to the Hospital,” Assistant Chief of Police Eric Olsen said in an email to The Statesman. “At this time it appears the reason for the entrapment was overcrowding in the elevator.”
The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. in Roosevelt Quad. The girls were trapped between the second and third floors until approximately 9:15 p.m..
“Officers responded to Stimson College for a report of an elevator entrapment,” Olsen said. “Fire Marshals also responded and were able free the occupants.”
