Federal police, state police and fire department had to rescue the group from their predicament.
On the platform, the twelve men are said to have entered the elevator already honking their horns. Even during the ride, the group is said to have kept on honking, which was too much for the elevator to handle. He got stuck in the pedestrian underpass about one meter before reaching the final position. The elevator is designed to carry 14 people, but it broke down on the twelve men from the district of main-spessart in lower franconia who were honking their horns.
Federal police, state police and fire department went to the station to rescue the "imprisoned" to help. The trapped group could not get out of the elevator on their own and complained of shortness of breath.
As the men began to panic, the fire department punched a hole in the glass door of the elevator to free the men.
Around 14:55 all twelve participants of the bachelor party were safely rescued from the elevator. Damage to the elevator was estimated at 2000 euros. The federal police took down the personnel for possible damage claims before the group could continue on its way.
