MOTT HAVEN - A Bronx family's apartment is flooded due to a gusher-like flood from its kitchen sink.

After unsuccessful attempts to stop the flood themselves, the Cortijo family says it called the fire department, which wasn?t able to do anything either. The city's housing department showed up an hour later, and its crew finally managed to shut the apartment's water off. But by then, the damage was done, with the apartment flooded from wall to wall.

Crews cleaned up the water with mops and vacuums, and the family says it now has to go through its belongings and assess the damage.
