Firefighters Rescue Pope Francis at The Vatican (Video)

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has been rescued by firefighters after he got stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes, ahead of his weekly address on Sunday.
Francis apologized to crowds gathered in St. Peter's Square, Vatican City on Sunday, after showing up late for his weekly address.


"I have to apologize for being late," a smiling Pope said at the start of the Angelus address.

He then asked the crowd for a round of applause for the firefighters.

Addressing the crowd, the Pope said there had been a "drop in voltage and the elevator stopped".

"Thank goodness, the firefighters arrived, and I thank them so much, and after 25 minutes of work they managed to get it started again," he said.
