Wouldn’t you just love to hang out with Lauren Alaina for an hour or so? Under normal circumstances, sure! But how about on a New York elevator stuck between floors?
Unfortunately, that’s what just happened to the Georgia peach and her team.
In a new Instagram Story, Lauren, in her typically light-hearted fashion, shared the news that the elevator that she was riding on was stuck. She jokingly shared a clip where she faked a panicked expression and captioned it, “Help us.”
Later, she shared another clip revealing that she and her elevator companions were trapped on the lift with no air-conditioning. With eyes wide and lots of fire emojis, Lauren maintained her sense of humor.
After about 20 minutes of confinement, the cutie casually and calmly announced that she might be about to panic.
She was right. Whether she was seriously afraid or not, her face looked fearful in a later clip, when she announced that the elevator company had to be contacted. Apparently, they were trapped between floors and could not be removed safely.
After more than 45 minutes on the elevator with members of her team and a few strangers-turned-friends, Lauren and the rest had to make a risky leap from the elevator. “Scariest thing of my life. Literally,” she wrote of the experience.
She may have been terrified, but if we had to be stuck on an elevator with anyone, we’d want it to e Lauren. That zany sense of humor would sure take the edge off of a tense situation, wouldn’t it?
