NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Paint problems are causing headaches for a Norfolk family — literally.
The mother asked the apartment complex for a fresh coat of paint, but now it’s giving her daughter headaches.
On top of that, after they complained, management gave the family the boot, telling them to get out within 48 hours.
Get out within 48 hours, or they must stay while management tries to fix whatever is wrong until their lease is up in September.
But they don’t want to stay. They want to move into another apartment, which they had been promised, that is until a doctor agreed with them that the paint could be the cause of the illness.
“She was complaining of blurry vision, had numerous nose bleeds, and headaches,” says Myriame Lamothe, who is talking about her 7-year-old Samya.
