A New York City woman was stuck in an elevator from Friday evening until she was rescued Monday morning.
Marites Fortaliza, 53, a housekeeper for billionaire and conservative political donor Warren Stephens, was caught between the second and third floors of the Upper East Side townhouse, the New York Post reported Monday.
The New York City Department of Buildings gave the townhouse two violations, one in 1996 and another in 2008, related to elevator maintenance, the Post reported.
A NYC’s Department of Buildings spokesperson said aggravated violation was issued for not allowing inspectors to look at the elevator, according to ABC News. The spokesperson added there could be more violations issued. (RELATED: MSNBC Reporter Tries To Corner Pro-Kavanaugh Woman)
