A New York City woman enlisted TikTok to help track down the hunky firefighter who rescued her from a stuck elevator — and thanks to the power of social media, she was able to ask him out for a drink.
When Hailey Logan, 27, found herself trapped last week, she started filming her rescue, but she likely didn’t imagine the saga would end with her coming face to face with a handsome hero.
The footage shows the dentist sitting on the elevator’s floor with her mask on as members of the New York City Fire Department try to pry open the door. They eventually succeed, and she is first greeted by the sexy firefighter.

Her friend stressed the urgency in the comments of her initial post, writing: ‘NYC FIND THIS MAN FOR MY BESTIE.’
It didn’t take long for the firefighter’s sister and co-workers to come across the video. After they showed it to him, he created a TikTok account to respond to Hailey with his own clip.
