THE BRONX -

A Bronx mother says she's got mold and mildew in her apartment thanks to a ceiling leak that's gone without repairs for two years.

"I am mopping the ceiling so the water doesn't get into my food," says Wanda Roman.

She says she recently had to move her granddaughter's crib because a new leak sprang up in her bedroom.

Roman has video that she says shows crews replacing an entire wall in November to try and stop the leak. Apparently, the effort failed.

When News 12 visited Friday, crews were on the roof of her Eastchester Houses building making more repairs.

Roman says she'll keep buckets ready in case water comes in afterward.
