MORRISANIA - A Morrisania woman is blaming water that has seeped into her apartment building from a leaky roof for a slip and fall that hospitalized her over the weekend.

Caridad Maldonado, a resident of 830 East 163rd St., says she was walking down the stairs of her apartment when she slipped on a wet step and landed on her back. The fall landed her in the hospital.

An inspection of a fifth-floor apartment shows gaping holes in the ceiling caused by a major leak after her building’s roof partially collapsed over the weekend.

The Department of Buildings has since issued six partial vacate orders in apartments where the roof collapsed. A DOB spokesperson says agents inspected the roof Sunday and found it was being illegally repaired. The agency issued a stop work order and two violations.

Calls to Ageis Realty, the building’s management company, have not been returned.
