Emergency management officials confirmed that a stairwell between the second and third floor of the old building gave way, trapping people upstairs. One person on the tour said they didn’t realize how weak the stairwell was until a few people went down it and it crashed to the bottom floor. A local television station recorded the famous singer as a fireman helped McEntire down the ladder out of a second-story window. Reports said first responders checked her out on the scene and determined McEntire was healthy.
After the incident, the entertainer issued a short statement acknowledging she was at the site during the collapse and thanked the local police and fire departments for their fast response and help.
