Ryan Seacrest Rescued From Stuck Times Square Elevator

NEW YORK (CBS SF/AP) — TV host Ryan Seacrest says he and about five other people got stuck in a Times Square elevator before an appearance on “Good Morning America” and were rescued by firefighters.

The host of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” was heading up to the crystal ball on Friday morning when the elevator got stuck.

He posted short videos from the elevator on Twitter. The group made phone calls and joked about broadcasting from the space if necessary.

About 35 minutes after Seacrest’s initial post he sent a video of a grinning New York firefighter prying open the elevator doors to cheers. Seacrest and the others thanked the firefighters and walked out.

The annual show rings in the New Year among hundreds of thousands of Times Square revelers.
