NY Delivery Man Stuck in Elevator for 3 Days

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Chinese food delivery man was found trapped in a broken elevator on Tuesday, more than three days after he was reported missing, police said.
Ming Kung Chen, 35, who worked for the Happy Dragon restaurant in the Bronx, was reported missing late Friday when he did not return an hour after setting out on a delivery.

Police said he was found at about 6 a.m. EDT on Tuesday and was hospitalized with dehydration. Police were unable to question him immediately because he did not speak English
