Country legend Reba McEntire was touring a historic building in Atoka, Oklahoma when the stairwell suddenly collapsed. Reba and her group were stuck on the third floor of the building with no way to get down.

Emergency Management Director for Atoka, Travis Mullins, told KXII, "We were just touring the building and the stairwell was weak, it seemed weak but we did not realize how weak it was until several people had gone down it and then we heard the crash and saw the stairs fall."

Luckily, the Atoka fire and police departments were on hand to rescue the singer and her party!

Reba later thanked the Atoka fire and police departments for their "quick response" to their dilemma.
