Firemen come to the rescue of Pope Francis after he got stuck in his lift for 25 minutes

The Head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis was yesterday rescued after firefighters after he got stuck in his personal lift.

Pope Francis was rescued by firefighters after he got stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes, ahead of his weekly address on Sunday (01.09.19).

Francis apologized to crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on Sunday, after showing up late for his weekly address.

Addressing the crowds, he explained: “Dear brothers and sisters, good morning. First of all, I have to apologize for being late but I had an unexpected event, I have been stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes.”

The Pope said that there was “a drop in voltage,” and that the elevator stopped. “Thank goodness, the firemen arrived, and I thank them so much, and after 25 minutes of work they managed to get it started again,” he said.

“A round of applause for the firefighters!” added the 82-year-old Pontiff.

According to a report by Capital News, Pope Francis flies out on Wednesday (04.09.19) for a week-long tour visiting three Indian Ocean African countries hard hit by poverty, conflict and natural disaster.

The pope will visit Mozambique and Madagascar, as well as Mauritius, countries visited by the late Pope John Paul II in 1988 and 1999.
