A woman rescued from an Upper East Side building on Monday claims that she had been trapped there since Friday.

If the woman was indeed trapped for that amount of time, it would surpass an incident from October 1999 when an elevator operator was trapped for 41 hours in an elevator at the McGraw-Hill building and would push the three-day limit that humans are able to survive without water.
