A dozen people were stuck in an elevator for at least an hour near the top of the Jefferson Davis Monument Saturday afternoon.
The Fairview Volunteer Fire Department was called to the monument just before 4:30 and a crew climbed the stairs to the top where the door to the elevator was stuck. Twelve people were onboard, including a small child and an elderly woman.
Responders were able to open the elevator and the individuals who had been trapped made the long walk down. The elderly woman was reportedly assisted down the stairs. No one required a trip to the hospital.
The Todd County Rescue Squad, EMS and the Hopkinsville Fire Department also responded and assisted at the scene.
