A Brooklyn mom told PIX11 she uses buckets to bathe her son because the heat and hot water is inconsistent in Sumner Houses.
Evelyn Rolon says she boils water and uses a bucket to bathe her son, who is living with autism.
“Everyday I wake up with no heat, no hot water. I have rust in our tub. I can’t get the basic necessities. All we get is, 'where’s the rent?'” said Rolon. “It’s downright degrading."
A New York City Housing Authority spokesperson tells us they made adjustments to building equipment to increase temperatures. Plumbers were on site Monday, and staff will schedule a re-glazing of Rolon's bathtub.
Rolon says the hot water is now flowing.
