Modern Family costars Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet got stuck in an elevator on their way to a charity event Friday, but the group dealt with it by cracking some jokes about the situation.
According to Us Weekly, the cast was trapped in the elevator with 12 other people for almost an hour before being rescued by the Kansas City Fire Department.
Despite the circumstances, the three comedy actors posted humorous tweets about the incident, E! reported.
Stonestreet posted a photo and said, "I honestly handled being stuck in an elevator for 50 min better than I thought. All @jessetyler did was pass wind. That's my mom in blue."
Ferguson made his own remark by tweeting, "Finally made it out of the stuck elevator at the one hour mark. At least the firemen in K.C. are cute.”
When the group finally made it down to the event over an hour late, at least a third of the crowd was gone, according to the Kansas City Star. The event was a fund-raiser called Kids Night Out 2013, which was held at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel in Missouri.
