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. She was taken to hospital in stable condition.

According to a Stephens family statement, she was dehydrated but is now in a stable condition at a private medical centre in NY.

Marites Fortaliza spent the whole weekend trapped inside Warren Stephens' building in NY.

Fortaliza has been working for the Stephens for 18 years, a company spokesman said in the report: "The Stephens family is relieved and thankful that she is doing well in the hospital".

Billionaire Warren Stephens is the president of that LLC and is listed at the address in public records.

The home belongs to billionaire Warren A. Stephens and his wife, Harriet Stephens.

A woman became trapped inside a stuck elevator on Friday 25 January, and wasn't freed until Monday 28.

The owners had gone away for the weekend, and called 911 when they returned home. He has an estimated net worth of $2.4bn.

The cause of the incident is now under investigation.

On Monday afternoon, a New York Department of Buildings inspector was sent to the Stephens residence to determine what happened, but an unknown man refused him entry, according to the New York Post.

The townhouse's elevator was last inspected in July and had no violations. One must wonder why the elevator didn't have an emergency button or a phone to call for help?
