Woman trapped in Amtrak elevator contacted seven months later

  • 09/09/2016

Seven months after being trapped in a company lift, Amtrak has responded to the woman's tweet for help.

Amanda Carpenter, a political columnist for CNN and senior staffer to Ted Cruz, became trapped in an elevator in the Baltimore Washington Airport on Valentine's Day.

After some quick thinking, she thought taking to Twitter might help her get out of the situation faster.

"Guys. I'm trapped in an Amtrak elevator at BWI Airport. Help?"

Unfortunately because Ms Carpenter didn't directly tag the company, it didn't pop up on their notifications.

Ms Carpenter seemed rather forgiving of the situation, however the internet wasn't.
