08/07/08 105 W - + 11 - 10 Cramping Cheerleaders


Would you believe 26 cheerleaders crammed into a single elevator car? That's what Austin firefighters faced on Tuesday night, when a gaggle of teens at the University of Texas commenced conducting an experiment in mass, weight, and the mechanical capabilities of a dormitory elevator. Once stuck, cell phones were wiggled free and used to summon emergency officials. Extrication took 25 minutes, once a repairman was on scene. One subject fainted and was transported; two others were treaded on scene. Unknown if pom poms were also present at the confined space rescue. Story details from the Associated Press. Sardonic wit or attempts thereof from Yours Truly.





I can just hear the screams now…...I feel for those Firefighters that made that rescue.

Talk about crammed. See the 10-50 in Arizona? 19 people on board SUV, at least 9 die in SUV rollover on rural Ariz. road

Looks like this is fairly common in Arizona?
