KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- We call police when we need help. As it turns out, police needed to call the Kansas City Fire Department when they ended up stranded in a tight spot!

Gregg Favre from the St. Louis Fire Department tweeted out a picture of the rescue. An elevator malfunctioned inside the police academy near 435 and Pleasant Valley Road.

The KC fire department arrived and freed their brothers in blue. Not one of the 12 officers inside were hurt, and were said to be in good spirits. The rescue made for some pretty light-hearted teasing though.

“We had a lot of fun with them and we made sure everything happened safely and we did it all the way it`s supposed to be done, and they were good sports about it and we threw our jabs. It was cool,” said firefighter Tony Pisciotta.

The fire department says elevator rescues are a regular occurrence, and this one just happened to take place at the police academy.
