CHICAGO (WLS) -- A worker at the Willis Tower spent three hours trapped in an elevator.

The Chicago Fire Department said the 63-year-old woman was stuck between the 7th and 8th floors overnight.

Other employees apparently tried for two hours to get her out before calling the fire department in.

The woman walked out of the Willis Tower on her own. She was not injured.
