NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a woman was rescued after being stuck for three days in the private elevator of a Manhattan townhouse owned by a billionaire investment banker from Arkansas.

A police spokesman says the 53-year-old woman was in stable condition Monday at a hospital. The woman is a family employee.

Authorities responded to a 911 call at about 10 a.m. from the home on East 65th Street, near Central Park. Firefighters freed the woman after forcing entry into the elevator.

The luxury townhouse is owned by Warren A. Stephens and his wife, Harriet Stephens. He did not immediately respond to a message left with Stephens Inc., his investment bank based in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The cause of the elevator mishap is under investigation.
