Sunday evening, Action News devoted a segment to an elevator breakdown at 1500 Locust. According to the report, five "young adults" were trapped in the broken elevator for four hours.
Sarah Blattner and Vanessa Olbrecht were among the five stuck in the elevator at the 1500 Locust Apartments. "We got in, we hit each of our floors, the elevator started to go up and then all of sudden it stopped," Olbrecht said. They opened the doors to a cinder block. According to subsequent news reports, however, the five didn't panic—they shared groceries one of them was bringing upstairs to her apartment and hung out. Because that's how young adults roll.
