A New York City woman with a heart condition died Friday after getting stuck for a half hour in a stalled elevator. Danielle Goldberg was 26.

Her family says she became trapped in the elevator of her Staten Island building at about 11:35 a.m. as she returned from a doctor's appointment.

She was able to call her family for help, but by the time rescuers arrived just after noon she was unconscious.

She died later in the day at a hospital.

Goldberg's family said she suffered from a congenital heart defect.
