The big blackout
Take the stairs — Houston Fire Department makes 30 elevator rescues
You're chances of getting stuck in an elevator are greater today.
On a typical day, the Houston Fire Department responds to two or three elevator rescues. But between 4:30 this morning to mid-afternoon, firefighters made 30 trips to pry out people stuck in elevators around Houston. Most are believed to have been caused by the rolling power outages that have occurred throughout the city.
Maybe it's a good day to start an exercise plan — and take the stairs.
