Ceiling collapses in family's NYCHA apartment
A Brooklyn family of seven has no place to stay after their living room and kitchen collapsed in their New York City Housing Authority home.
Van Truong and her family have for months been complaining about ceiling leaks and wet mold in their home of three years. When the ceiling collapsed earlier in the week, the family says they could look out and see the sun.
Friday morning, a piece of drywall dropped onto Truong's husband, costing him a trip to the emergency room.
The family says NYCHA promised a new apartment as soon as possible, but it is taking too long and the family doesn't feel safe spending the night in their home.
A spokesperson from NYCHA told News 12, "This is absolutely unacceptable and NYCHA holds itself to a higher standard. No family should be subjected to this and our staff is working to make repairs as quickly as possible."
