Palm Beach County Fire Rescue was initially called to Ferrari of Palm Beach for a reported structure fire, WPTV reported. However, when crews arrived, they found a car hanging upside down in an elevator shaft instead of a fire.

PBCFR said in a Facebook post that crews had to resolve a fuel leak by setting up portable standpipes and cutting power to the business before they could remove the car that was hanging upside down in the elevator shaft.

A towing company brought in a rotator wrecker to remove the vehicle using a 45-foot extension of the wrecker’s boom and several 50,000-pound winches, WPTV reported.

Crews worked for approximately four hours to remove the car from the elevator shaft, WPEC reported. There were no injuries reported.
