It has all the marks of an actual episode of Modern Family: show cast members Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Julie Bowen got stuck in an elevator while visiting Stonestreet’s hometown of Kansas City, Kan. on Friday for a fundraiser.
The crowded elevator stopped short of the third floor but they made the best of the situation — Ferguson Tweeted a photo of the bunch as well as a short video after being stuck in the crammed space for 35 minutes of all the passengers screaming, “Get us out!” CNN.com. reported.
Firemen did eventually arrive at the scene and extricated the total of 15, trapped passengers using a ladder after an hour of being stuck.
The trio were at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center, where they were set to headline for Kids Night Out 2013, a fundraiser Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, when the elevator suddenly got stuck, according to The Kansas City Star.
The threesome were due to appear on stage at 9 p.m. but appeared after being freed at 10 p.m. seemly pumped up from their ordeal and chock full of jokes.
As Stonestreet left the stage, he said, “Have a great night and don’t use the elevators!”
