Housekeeper stuck in Manhattan elevator for three days is rescued

The woman, a cleaning employee, became stuck between the second and third floors while working in a private townhouse on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Friday.

According to the FDNY, the trapped woman said she had been in the elevator of the town home, located on East 65th Street and Park Avenue, since Friday.

Following the rescue the woman was taken to the hospital.

That said, one New Yorker was trapped inside one of these tiny, century-old elevators for the entire weekend.

She was rescued Monday morning after a delivery man came to the house and was concerned when no one answered the door.

The owners had gone away for the weekend and called for help when they returned home. She's reportedly in good condition. He did not immediately respond to a message left with Stephens Inc., his investment bank based in Little Rock, Arkansas. A city buildings inspector who was on the scene today to inspect the elevator added that, "most likely, it will be [another] violation". has reached out to representatives of Mr. and Mrs Stephens for comment.
