Three stars of the hit show Modern Family had to be rescued by firefighters on Friday after they were trapped in an elevator for nearly an hour.

Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were stuck with a dozen other people when the lift jammed on the third floor of a hotel in Kansas City.

Rescue workers had to make their way down from the 40th floor to free the stars, who remained upbeat by tweeting photos as well as a video of everyone trapped in the elevator screaming, “Get us out!”

Tyler Ferguson tweeted: “Finally made it out of the stuck elevator at the one hour mark. At least the firemen in K.C. are cute.”

Stonestreet said, “I honestly handled being stuck in an elevator better than I thought. All Jesse Tyler did was pass wind.”

The stars were late for their appareance at the Kids Night Out 2013 fundraiser they headlined for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
