READING, Mass. (WHDH) -
Firefighters in Reading were called upon to rescue a family of three from an elevator, but more than the rescue it’s their singing that’s getting attention.
Four-year-old Kaelyn Kerr was stuck in the elevator with her mother and brother after a visit to the salon.
“As we approached the second floor the elevator stopped, we pressed every button known to man, nothing happened, we tried to push through the door and it was stopped,” Kaelyn’s mother Kristin Kerr said.
Firefighters lowered a ladder in, but Kaelyn was too scared to climb up, that’s when one firefighter asked what her favorite movie was and she said Frozen, the popular Disney movie.
They weren’t just familiar with the movie, but one of the firefighters actually had the Oscar winning song ‘Let it Go’ on his cell phone.
“He pulled out his phone and on his phone was the song 'Let it Go' from Frozen. He put it on and they all started singing to her,” Kerr said.
“I just started singing and grabbed my phone, because you know, I'm sure she didn't want to hear me singing the entire time,” Scott Myette said.
After the song Kaelyn was more comfortable climbing up the ladder and out from the elevator.
“I don't think it's anything different than what anyone else would have done. Whether they sang or you know, distract with a little stuffed animal, I think it's probably along those lines,” John Keough said. The firefighters said they are glad everything worked out in the end.
Kerr said she was relieved they were out, entertained by the firefighters’ show and impressed with their singing voices.
