San Diego firefighters have freed two women from an elevator that dropped several stories and became stuck between floors in a 34-story downtown building.

The elevator dropped several floors and became stuck.

Firefighters finally succeeded in getting the elevator to move after trying several methods.

They were checked into a hospital and are expected to be fine.
