19-year-old NYCHA resident shares her story after testing positive for lead
NEW YORK -- Brenda Ambers is a mom on a mission to get justice for her two daughters who tested positive for high lead levels in 2004 while they were living in the Frederick Douglass Houses, a public housing complex located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Ambers' oldest daughter was 5 years old when she tested positive with a lead level of 13. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say no lead levels are considered safe and level 5 is considered toxic.
