Pope Francis Rescued By Firefighters After Getting Stuck In Elevator
Pope Francis had to be been rescued by firefighters after he got stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes, right before he was scheduled to do his Sunday address to the crowds.
Following his ordeal, Francis apologized to the people gathered in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on Sunday.
“Dear brothers and sisters, good morning. First of all, I have to apologize for being late but I had an unexpected event, I have been stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes,” he said.
The pope revealed that the elevator was stuck because there was a drop in voltage.
“Thank goodness, the firemen arrived, and I thank them so much, and after 25 minutes of work they managed to get it started again,” he said.
“A round of applause for the firefighters!” he added.
