Five tourists reportedly with medical conditions got stuck 200 feet underground in Grand Canyon Caverns, Arizona, US on Monday evening, October 24.

This happened  24 hours after the elevator they took into the cave on Sunday broke down.

Grand Canyon Caverns, located about 100 miles west of Flagstaff, Arizona, features a small hotel and restaurant 20 floors down where the stranded tourists have been staying while workers try to fix the elevator.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office was determining whether they would need to hoist the tourists out through the elevator shaft on Monday.

"We have this thing – it's like a lift, and we would basically lift them up the elevator shaft in a harness, something like you see come out of a helicopter in the ocean, something to that effect," Jon Paxton, a spokesperson for the sheriff's office, told Fox News Digital on Monday.

''There are 20 flights of stairs that people can take to get out of the caverns, but the tourists who are stuck have medical conditions preventing them from climbing out,'' Paxton said.
