A couple’s living room ceiling at a NYCHA project in Brownsville fell down two weeks ago, and no one has come to fix it yet.

Kisha Hobgood said the city offered to send a repair crew on Christmas Eve, according to PIX11. However, she says this is unacceptable because their two children are smelling the mold and possibly breathing in debris.

After Hobgood called PIX11, NYCHA workers repaired a gaping hole in the ceiling and removed some water-saturated insulation. 

However, they said they couldn’t make permanent repairs immediately because of heavy water penetration.
