EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

An East St. Louis woman said she had no air conditioning for several days and her landlord had yet to fix it.

Vikki Turner said the air conditioning at her apartment hasn’t worked since Friday. When News 4 visited her apartment on Wednesday, the electricity and air conditioner were on, but the air conditioner was not blowing cold air.

“I went through the weekend and it was in the 90s, now it’s in the hundreds and I’m still without air or anything, and they tell me to go buy a fan. I don’t have any money, I’m on a fixed income and I have a 12-year-old daughter I have to provide for,” said Turner.

News 4 called the owner of the apartment building, East Lake Management Group, on Wednesday but were told the company’s offices were closed for the day. News 4 will attempt to contact the company on Thursday.
