A ceiling caving in at an Albuquerque apartment complex has one tenant calling out her landlord.

She says she knew her roof would eventually cave in, but her landlord didn’t fix it in time.

Justy Hanson was sitting in her living room when pieces of the ceiling started to fall, a bit later, water came rushing in.

“It was leaking, my ceiling, and all of a sudden the ceiling started falling, little by little, collapsing, and I got overwhelmed.” 

Hanson says it actually started leaking 10 days ago and she complained but it wasn’t fixed.

We spoke with the landlord. 

He says he was planning on having someone fix it but didn’t say when. 

Hansen says she’ll keep living there with the dripping hole.
