26 cheerleaders rescued from jammed elevator

AUSTIN – Twenty-six teenage cheerleaders tried to cram themselves into an elevator at the University of Texas to see how many would fit, but then they got stuck and had to be rescued.

One girl was treated and released at a hospital and two others were treated at the scene after the Tuesday night prank, officials said.

The group of 14-to 17-year-olds were attending a cheerleading camp when they decided to stuff themselves into an elevator at Jester Residence Hall on the UT campus.

The elevator went down to the first floor but then the doors of the overloaded elevator wouldn’t open, officials said.

After a few panicked cellphone calls, police and firefighters were called to the scene and it took a repairman about 25 minutes to fix the door, police said.

UT officials didn’t find the prank funny.

“It’s dangerous, actually,” UT police spokeswoman Rhonda Weldon said. “They’re lucky that that’s all that happened.”

    Do they wonder why there’s some stereotypes around Cheerleaders? Probably not as these ones seems to been unable to deal with common sense.
