Earlier today, three stars of ABC’s Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, were trapped in an elevator.
While stuck, Ferguson took to Twitter to share the experience with his followers.
The three actors were in Stonestreet’s hometown of Kansas City, Missouri attending a benefit for the Boys & Girls Clubs when their trip came to a crashing halt. Luckily, they weren’t alone as nearly a dozen other people were stuck in the Sheraton elevator as well, according to The Huffington Post.
After Bowen, Stonestreet, and Ferguson were finally rescued, Stonestreet tweeted, “I honestly handled being stuck in an elevator for 50min better than I thought. All @jessetyler did was pass wind.”
Ferguson also tweeted, “Finally made it out of the stuck elevator at the one hour mark. At least the firemen in K.C. are cute.”
The Kansas City Star noted that when the actors finally made their way to the stage at the fund-raiser, they seemed full of energy, despite the delay, and cracked jokes about the incident. Stonestreet announced, “Have a great night and don’t use the elevators!”
Afterwards, the crew made their way to visit Stonestreet’s childhood home.
