Reba McEntire and boyfriend rescued from crumbling historic building

Reba rescued from collapse

Country superstar Reba McEntire and her boyfriend have been rescued by firefighters after a staircase in a historic building gave way.

Reba and her boyfriend Rex Linn were on the second floor of the Atoka, Oklahoma, site - which is more than 100 years old - on Tuesday when their tour was abruptly ended by the stairs' sudden collapse.

In a video shared to Twitter by local news anchor Lisanne Anderson, the I'm a Survivor star can be seen slowly being led backwards down a ladder.

Anderson captioned her tweet, "Close call for @reba in Atoka, Oklahoma Tuesday (9/14/21) Sure glad she and boyfriend Rex Linn are ok!

"While touring an old building, a staircase collapsed. They were among seven people inside. Atoka's finest came to the rescue.

"No one hurt, just some bumps and bruises."

TMZ reports McEntire and Linn were two of seven people rescued, while one person was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

According to the outlet, the building was in the middle of being renovated and the dilapidated stairs were already scheduled to be replaced.
