On Wednesday, St Louis Fire Department Chief Gregg Favre shared a photo of a special rescue by his team.
According to CNN, a group of police officers became trapped when an elevator in the Kansas City Police Academy stalled due to being over the weight limit. The firefighters were quick to come to the rescue, pausing momentarily for the hilarious photo.
Once shared to Twitter, the photo provoked joyful reactions from other firefighters.
Kansas City Police were less enthusiastic.
The police department eventually shared the photo to its Facebook page, assuring Facebook commenters that while all those involved made it out physically unscathed, some egos were "severely injured."
According to one of the firefighters involved, some of the trapped officers were able to see the funny side of the situation.
