Woman rescued after spending three days in an elevator

Local News

(NEW YORK CITY) – A nightmare of a story out of New York City, where a woman got stuck in an elevator for three days. The woman had no food or water, and when someone finally found her, she was barely conscious.

Police say the 53-year-old woman was cleaning a private home on Friday. She told the authorities who rescued her that that’s when the elevator got stuck between the second and third floors of the house, and that nobody came home until the Monday after.

The luxury townhouse is owned by billionaire Warren A. Stephens and his wife.

In a statement, the Stephens family says the woman has worked for them for 18 years, and they are “relieved and thankful” that she is doing well in the hospital.
