Country Music Star Saved Moments Before Building Starts to Crumble

A country music star who was touring a very old building in Oklahoma was rescued just moments before the building began to crumble.

Country music legend Reba McEntire was touring a historic site in Atoka, Oklahoma, just 16 miles south of her hometown of Chockie, when she was suddenly trapped in a very dangerous situation.

The building, which she was inspecting to possibly use for an upcoming project, was at least 100 years old, and was in the middle of a renovation.

Standing on the second floor, Reba became trapped as the stairs from the second to the third floor suddenly collapsed, taking out the stairs leading down to the first floor as they fell.

The local fire department was called, and a very long ladder was extended up to the second floor window to rescue the country music star and her crew of seven.

CBS News shared a video of the rescue on Twitter, writing: “Country singer Reba McEntire was helped down from a historic building after a staircase collapse on Tuesday in Atoka, Oklahoma. McEntire and her partner Rex Linn were touring the building when the stairs collapsed, leaving them stranded on the second floor.”



The country music legend sent out a tweet the day after the incident, assuring her fans that she and her team were safe.

“While my team and I were in Atoka, OK yesterday checking out an old historical building, a staircase collapsed. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured. We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Atoka fire and police departments,” Reba wrote in the tweet.

While Reba was able to escape the crumbling building safely, several news outlets have reported that one person was brought to the hospital with minor injuries.
