    PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) — A 25-year-old Papillion woman died after becoming stuck in a home elevator.

    The Sarpy County sheriff’s office says deputies and Papillion firefighters were called to a home about 1 p.m. Thursday and found the woman stuck between part of the vertical lift system and the main floor of the residence. The woman, who was unconscious, was identified as Asha Chaudhuri.

    It took the first responders about 20 minutes to free Chaudhuri. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    Chaudhuri often used the lift to move between floors of the home.

    Authorities say the death appears accidental but an investigation will continue.
