Proof positive that Reba McEntire is a true survivor, the legendary country music superstar was rescued from a historical building in Atoka, Okla., when a staircase collapsed.

“While my team and I were in Atoka, OK yesterday checking out an old historical building, a staircase collapsed,” she said on Twitter. “Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.”

As local TV station KXII reported, the 66-year-old singer/actress was removed from the building through a second-story window by a fire ladder. McEntire confirmed that she and her team were safely evacuated, and expressed sincere gratitude to the city’s fire and police departments for their quick response to the rescue. 

McEntire and her team were touring the historic building for a “future project when, as Travis Mullins, the emergency management director for the city of Atoka said, the stairwell from the second to the third story in the building collapsed – trapping people in the building. 

“It opened our eyes to see exactly just how unsturdy they were and when they did collapse, we [saw] what little was holding them up,” Mullins said in an interview with the local broadcaster.
