Reba McEntire Survives Staircase Collapse In A Historical Building In Oklahoma
  • Reba McEntire was rescued from a historical building in Oklahoma on Tuesday, September 14.

  • She, her boyfriend, and her staff were forced to evacuate after a staircase collapsed, leaving them trapped inside.

  • No one was seriously injured, and a news station captured footage of McEntire being helped out of a second-story window.

Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Rex Linn were among a group of people evacuated from an Oklahoma home following a staircase collapse on Tuesday. No one was seriously injured.

“While my team and I were in Atoka, OK, yesterday checking out an old, historical building, a staircase collapsed,” the “Fancy” singer, 66, wrote on Twitter. “We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Atoka fire and police departments.”

McEntire, Linn, and several other members of her team had been scouting the building for an upcoming project, per local news outlet KXII. The station also shared footage of the singer being evacuated from a second-story window via a fire ladder.

“We were just touring the building, and the stairwell was weak. It seemed weak, but we did not realize how weak it was until several people had gone down it,” Coby Scherrill, one of the people stuck inside the building with McEntire, told KXII. “Then we heard the crash and saw the stairs fall.”

Atoka Emergency Management Director Travis Mullins told KXII that the stairwell between the second and third floors collapsed, blocking the stairs from the first to the second floor. As a result, everyone inside the building was trapped on whichever floor they had been on.

It’s still unclear what project McEntire was scouting the building, which is reportedly over 100 years old, for, but it could be related to her upcoming Revived Remixed Revisited triple album.

Well, you know what they say about Reba McEntire—she’s a survivor!
