Reba McEntire had to be rescued by firefighters yesterday (Tuesday) after an old building she was visiting in Atoka, Oklahoma partially collapsed on the inside.
TMZ reports that the country legend and her boyfriend, Rex Linn, were among seven people inside an historic building when a staircase inside suddenly caved in. Firefighters had to climb up to rescue them from a second story window. A video showing Reba climbing down a ladder was shared on Twitter. Fortunately she and Rex are alright. One person reportedly suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital. The building, which is at least 100 years-old, is in the process of being renovated and it’s unknown why anyone was allowed to be inside.
