Default '02 Sienna w/ stuck key and spongy brake pedal

My wife called me while I'm at work to report that the ignition key is
stuck in the ignition, and the brake pedal sank to the floor. I
*think* it was able to shift back into Park, but I'm not certain.

Did a little bit of research, and when I get home I'm hoping to do a
combination of gently jiggling the key out of the ignition, and
disconnecting the battery just in case it's a solenoid problem of some
sort. What would cause the brake pedal to sink to the floor, though,
assuming there's no puddle of brake fluid on the ground? (Brakes were
working perfectly last night.)

Thanks!

Michael

False alarm - it was in Reverse not Park. Brake is fine too. Key
came out after I put it in Park.

My wife is the same way. Nice to know nothing is wrong with the car.

It is a bit spooky to know there might be problems with the wife, though.

Nothing a remove and replace technician can't fix.
