Pope Francis Survives Elevator Mishap

It has been reported that Pope Francis escaped elevator mishap on Sunday after he was stuck in an elevator in the Vatican for 25 minutes and had to be freed by firefighters.

The pontiff made this known after he arrived late for his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square on Sunday.

“I have to beg your pardon,” the smiling pontiff said as he started the address about 10 minutes late, according to Reuters.

He then explained that there had been an electrical power problem in the Vatican and that he had been stuck in the elevator until freed by Vatican fire officers.

“A round of applause for the fire brigade,” he told the crowd.
