Three stars from the ABC comedy Modern Family got stuck in a lift in Kansas City for about an hour, delaying their appearance at a charity benefit.

Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet were in town for a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. Stonestreet grew up in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reported that the three actors were trapped in a lift with about a dozen other people at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at the Crown Centre, where they were headlining the fundraiser.

Crews from the Kansas City Fire Department freed the group at about 10pm, an hour after they were scheduled to appear.

When they finally took to the stage, the actors praised and thanked the fire department.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
