Animal loving New Yorkers came to the rescue to help Maggie, a cat that got caught in an elevator shaft.
Daily News readers raised more than $20,000 to save a curious East Harlem cat who spent a week in the hospital after getting stuck in an elevator shaft.
Maggie, the mischievous feline, went back to owner Primotivo Hernandez, 70, who said he “called her name every night” while doctors at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists in Union Square healed her wounds.
Cops pulled Maggie from a elevator shaft at the Jefferson Houses on E. 115th St. last Tuesday after her hind right leg got stuck between the elevator and the door on the second floor. She suffered a dislocated knee.
The wheelchair-bound Hernandez couldn’t afford $3,600 to fix “his only companion.”
