TMZ reported That McEntire was one of 7 people rescued from a more than 100-year-old building when it partially collapsed inside. The rescue took place in Akota, OK where McEntire and an unidentified person were visiting a historic site when the situation occurred. The website spoke to emergency management director Travis Mullins, who said the building was being renovated and the stairs were scheduled to be replaced.

The collapse left McEntire, and his party stalled until city firemen came to their rescue. One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Later it was told that the stairs of the second and third floors also fell.


The country music superstar was reportedly not injured in the incident. The fire department had to help rescue people trapped, including McEntire, through a second-floor window and under a ladder.

McEntire was reportedly visiting the historic building in downtown Atoka on September 15 for a future project, although it was not disclosed what that project would be. The singer was with her boyfriend Rex Lynn at the time, as KTEN news anchor Lisan Anderson reported in the tweet seen above, where McEntire was seen climbing the ladder of security.
