Oklahoma firefighters rescue Reba McEntire and boyfriend Rex Linn after stairwell collapses inside historical building


Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Rex Linn were among seven people rescued by firefighters from a historic site in Oklahoma on Tuesday. TMZ reported that crumbling stairs left the couple stranded on the building’s second floor, and that the building’s “dilapidated stairs” were already set to be replaced before the incident.

Local news anchor Lisanne Anderson shared footage on Twitter, writing on social media: “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.”

On Wednesday, McEntire posted on Facebook : “While my team and I were in Atoka, OK yesterday checking out an old historical building, a staircase collapsed. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured. We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Atoka fire and police departments.”
