If you've ever read a PR pitch during New York Fashion Week, you know that it's the kind of experience that requires a survival kit. Noted fashion youths Kylie JennerKendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin learned that lesson the hard way on Thursday when the three got stuck in a freight elevator for 20 minutes between shows and had to be rescued by firefighters. Truly harrowing.

It's worth noting that this isn't the first time an elevator has malfunctioned during fashion week. But that didn't stop the trapped group from freaking the fuck out — or from documenting the experience on Snapchat

Here's how the whole thing went down: First, Kylie tried to remain calm. That didn't really work. "My worst nightmare just happened: We are stuck in the elevator," she says on Snapchat.

Hailey, however, was more adept at hiding her panic and terror.

As the realization set in that there was no way of knowing how long they'd be stuck, the group became visibly worried about how they'd survive in the long-term. The only food on hand? The crumbly remains of a Nature Valley granola bar Kendall had already eaten. 

(This whole tragedy and ensuing social media coverage was definitely not sponsored by Nature Valley, right?? Right. Right????)

And finally, after 20 minutes (!!!!!) the group was rescued by brave men in uniform. (Editor's note: Hello, boys.)

How did Kendall and Kylie thank their heroic saviors? With a (pretty adorable) photo, of course.
