The stars of ABC's Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Julie Bowen found themselves stuck in a Kansas City Sheraton elevator on their way to a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club in the area, where Stonestreet is from.

The trio were stuck for an hour with 12 other unwitting captives, including Stonestreet's mother. The consummate comedians, true to their callings, made light of the situation, however, recording a plea on their cell phones to the firemen of Kansas City to "get us out" of the elevator. At one point they got everyone in the elevator to shout, "Get us out!" in unison.

Despite Stonestreet's later claim that, "All Jesse did was pass wind," while the stars were captives, the situation wasn't a total bust. "At least the firemen in K.C. are cute," Tyler Ferguson later wrote on Twitter, also posting the picture above. And Bowen jokingly fell into a fireman's rescuing arms as she climbed out of the elevator, to which Tyler Ferguson quipped, "I hope she was wearing underwear."
