Dr. Ben Carson was freed by firefighters after he, and his wife, became stuck in an elevator early Wednesday morning.
Carson, who is the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, was on his way to a meeting in the Courtside Family Apartments when the incident occurred.
The Miami, Florida apartments are connected to famous Miami Heat basketball player and philanthropist, Alonzo Mourning.
After the incident, Carson tweeted out this statement:
"Great meeting w/ Alonzo Mourning who is doing great work with low-income housing & thanks to the hard working @miamipd and @cityofmiamifire"
