Internal emails obtained by Denver7 reveal how Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump got stuck in an elevator during his visit to Colorado Springs.
The emails also show the fire department spelled out the capacity limits in a memo, days before Trump took a jab at the fire department for keeping some supporters out of his campaign event at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs (UCCS.)
The TV station requested emails between the Colorado Springs Fire Department, UCCS and the Trump campaign and received 214 pages of email, including one from Colorado Springs Fire Marshal Brett Lacey responding to a friend who had reached out to him after Trump's visit.
"Thanks for the support… it was funny. You have likely heard more about the elevator fiasco. Turns out someone (Secret Service or his entourage) had an elevator bypass key.. they (one of them) turned it off between floors and didn’t know how to get it back on... our folks went and fished them out… elevator guys get there and say what the crap? Who turned this off? Turned it back on and voila."
