Her grandson took pictures of the rats, which landed next to the shampoo in her shower caddie.

Jackson said she often bathes her great-grandchildren in the tub and had asked the New York Housing Authority to fix the hole in her bathroom ceiling several times, citing health concerns.

In a statement to WPIX, NYHA officials said they would schedule the repair work as soon as possible.
