Reba McIntyre I got the treatment for the cat stuck in a tree from the Oklahoma Department of Fire – except for the stump I climbed up was actually a nice old building with a zigzag staircase.
The country singer was one of 7 people rescued Tuesday by authorities in Atoka, Oklahoma. Ripa and a friend were walking around a historic site – at least 100 years old – when it partially collapsed inside.
Emergency Management Manager Travis Mullins He tells us… The building was in the middle of a renovation when this happened – the dilapidated staircases were already slated to be replaced. No word on why anyone would be allowed in, if that was the case.
Anyway, Ripa & Co. They were, fortunately, only on the second floor when the staircase collapsed… leaving them stuck there, requiring an old-fashioned staircase to be rescued. Video of the accident shows firefighters safely driving her and others through the window.
Riba and Associates. They were mostly fine… One person was taken to hospital with minor injuries. After the incident, the officials said that not only did the stairs of the second floor collapsed, but the ones that led to the third floor also did… Trapping the others in a higher place at the time.
This obviously could have been a lot worse than it turned out… especially for Reba. In fact, she is a survivor.
