Donald Trump stuck in elevator in Colorado city, rescued

The Colorado Springs Fire Department has said that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had to be rescued from an elevator that was stuck between the first and second floors of a resort.

In a statement released on Saturday, the department says that it was called at 1:30 pm (local time) Friday to rescue about 10 people, including Trump, trapped inside the elevator at The Mining Exchange resort.

The department says the firefighters opened the top elevator hatch and lowered a ladder into the elevator. Trump and the others used the ladder to climb out of the elevator to the second floor. The department says no injuries were reported.

The Trump campaign confirmed that the incident occurred but did not provide details. During a rally Friday at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Trump criticised the city’s fire marshal for limiting the number of people allowed to attend his speech at the building where the event was held.
