Marites Fortaliza, 53, got stuck between the second and third floors of the townhouse she worked in on Friday evening after the building's owners left town, the New York Post reported.

Firefighters responded to the scene, forcing open the elevator door and took the woman "to [a] local hospital with non-life threatening injuries", FDNY officials told People Magazine.

Ms Stephens heard Ms Fortaliza's cries for help and called 911 so members of the New York Fire Department could free her.
