    (Washington-AP) -- Firefighters went to great lengths to free a
    man from a stuck Metro elevator tonight.
    A D-C fire spokesman the elevator was stuck 60 feet underground
    at the Woodley Park-Zoo station in Northwest.
    Firefighter David Peyton used a rope to rappel 60 feet down the
    shaft and then went in through the roof of the car to get the
    26-year-old man inside.
    The firefighter and the elevator passenger were then pulled back
    up the shaft to safety.
    Fire spokesman Alan Etter says the passenger didn't want to
    stick around to talk about the experience.
