Country star Reba McEntire rescued after stairwell collapsed in historic Oklahoma building


ATOKA, Okla. (KFOR) – A country music superstar found herself in a strange situation, having to be rescued in Oklahoma recently.

According to KXII, Reba McEntire was touring a historic building in downtown Atoka on Tuesday afternoon when the stairwell collapsed.

McEntire was on an upper floor, so she was trapped until the Atoka Fire Department could come to her rescue.

Crews put a ladder up to a window and helped everyone, including McEntire, get to safety.

Tina Jackson was able to shoot video of McEntire coming down the ladder and that is the raw video in the player above.

KTEN reports that seven people had to be rescued from the building.

Fortunately, no one suffered severe injuries.
