Days after escaping from his hotel bathroom by breaking through the door, Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn of Team USA found himself stuck in an elevator.

Quinn was rescued shortly after posting on Twitter photos of himself trying to pry the door open, according to USA Today Sports.

Quinn was trapped on Monday along with teammate Nick Cunningham and bobsled technical director David Cripps, who also posted photos on Twitter.

While being interviewed by CNN’s Piers Morgan, Quinn made light of the mishaps.

“Now that everybody's safe, and the door's been fixed, the elevator's been fixed, it's kind of something funny to laugh about," Quinn said. "In the meantime, my teammates are giving me a hard time ... you can make sure that on race day I'll make sure that I shower with the door open and probably take the stairs."

Monday’s elevator incident came two days after Quinn drew attention for smashing through the door of a hotel bathroom, in which he was locked. Quinn received widespread attention for his tweet of the broken door, which was retweeted more than 25,000 times, according to the Washington Post.
