THE BRONX -

A disabled Patterson Houses tenant says she has been living without power since Wednesday.

Lisa Reynolds says the FDNY turned off her electricity after a leak from the ceiling caused the electrical panel in her apartment to spark.

Reynolds says she has been waiting for NYCHA to send a certified electrician to repair her power outlet.

"There's nothing in my refrigerator for the last five days, so I haven't been able to put anything in my refrigerator because I have no power," Reynolds said.

Reynolds carries a flashlight to make her way through her third-floor apartment. The 59-year-old says she is concerned about injuring herself.

News 12 reached out to NYCHA for a statement but has not heard back.
