Kudos to some fast-thinking firefighters for singing the monster hit “Let It Go” from “Frozen” to rescue a little girl from a stuck elevator.

John Keough and Scott Myette in Reading, Mass., were among those responding when Kristen Kerr and her two children got stuck in an elevator heading to a hair salon last week.

When firefighters lowered a ladder into the elevator from the shaft above, Kerr’s 4-year-old daughter, Kaelyn, refused to climb out.

"When they put the ladder down that's when she kind of started freaking out a little bit," Kerr told MyFox Boston.

That’s when Keough and Myette, both fathers of young children, came up with their brilliant idea. They asked Kaelyn what her favorite movie was and she said “Frozen.

“He pulled out his phone and on his phone was the song 'Let it Go' from Frozen. He put it on and they all started singing to her,” Kerr told reporters.

Myette told NBC News he was “slightly embarrassed to admit this, but yeah, I pretty much knew all of (the words). It's not a bad song, it just gets stuck in your head a bit."

Kaelyn calmed down enough to let the firefighters carry her to safety.
