LAS VEGAS -- People were trapped in an elevator at the Regional Justice Center for nearly a half hour Wednesday morning, a spokesman for Clark County confirmed.
Elevator 1 became stuck on the 4th floor at about 11:06 a.m. and was not released until about 11:30 a.m. The county cannot say how many people were in the elevator at the time that it was stuck.
The elevator contractor Otis has taken the elevator out of service, but there is no word on what caused the trouble.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
