According to a video posted to Twitter by KTEN reporter Lisanne Anderson, McEntire was helped out of a second-story window onto a ladder by firefighters. Anderson called it a “close call for @reba.”
Anderson tweeted that McEntire and her boyfriend, Rex Linn, were among a group of seven people. No one was seriously injured.
KXII reported that 66-year-old McEntire was rescued after a staircase collapsed while she and others were touring a historic building in Atoka, Oklahoma.
McEntire was touring the building for a future project, KXII reported. She was reportedly checked by paramedics on site.
