Ryan Seacrest, host of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, got stuck in an elevator on his way to reveal the New Year’s Eve Ball in Times Square on Saturday morning.
According to ABC News, Seacrest and the Good Morning America producers were trapped for 40 minutes before the Fire Department of New York was able to rescue them.
Seacrest shared his experience via social media and had quite the sense of humor about the whole situation. He was able to publish video to Twitter and make calls during the ordeal.
“We didn’t make it to floor two,” he explained, adding that the only snacks on hand were Altoids, cough drops and an Advil.
“I will tell you this: If you’ve ever been stuck in an elevator, it’s funny and cute for about 10 minutes,” Seacrest said. “And then about 20 minutes in, it’s not so funny anymore. But thank you to the fire department who came and rescued us and pried those doors open.”
Luckily, Seacrest and crew made it out safe and sound, and Seacrest was able to continue his hosting duties for the day with success.
Seacrest has already moved on from New Year’s Eve. He is now busy prepping for the upcoming Golden Globes. Hopefully, no elevators get in his way this time.
