While visiting the South Pasadena Public Library Saturday afternoon, elementary students Evan and Olivia from Arroyo Vista Elementary were witnesses to an elevator rescue that occured due to a power outage.

They got to see first hand how the fire department rescue crews were working to free a trapped passenger.  It was a powerful reminder of the safety rules they’ve been taught: Never enter an elevator during a fire alarm or emergency, use the stairs instead.
