Teens need math help after elevator stall

UPI News Service, 09/09/2007 

A group of 26 high school students apparently never considered the weight limit of a Missouri elevator, causing the lift to stall out recently.

The St. Louis (Mo.) Post-Dispatch said Sunday the 26 teenagers crammed in next to two adults on a glass elevator in the city of St. Peters and their combined weight forced the elevator to stall between floors.

Lucky for the teens and their two adult partners in the elevator, a group of local firefighters were at St. Peters' Mid Rivers Mall Saturday.

Using their occupational skills, the firefighters were able to free the elevator's crowded passengers from their precarious situation.

Steve Brown of the Central County Fire and Rescue of St. Peters told the Post-Dispatch the packed elevator car was like a sauna prior to the rescue.

"A blast of heat came out because of all the people were packed in there like sardines," he said. "The perspiration was actually running down the glass."
