Woman trapped in lift all weekend

US, New York: A woman has been rescued after spending an entire weekend trapped in her billionaire employer’s lift, authorities said. The woman, reported to be 53-year-old Marites Fortaliza, entered the elevator at the Manhattan townhouse owned by investment banker Warren Stephens on Friday evening. Firefighters responded to an emergency call on Monday and forced the lift open.

Ms Fortaliza is recovering in hospital. According to a family statement reported by the Associated Press Ms Fortaliza was dehydrated but in a stable condition at Weill Cornell Medical Center.

She has been “a valued member of the Stephens extended family for 18 years” and a family member accompanied her to the hospital, they are quoted as saying. Authorities said Ms Fortaliza was trapped between the second and third floors of the house, on the Upper East Side of the city near Central Park. The cause of the incident is now under investigation.
