The scene could be that of a disaster movie.
Very real, it was experienced by Souhayla and his two brothers in Sarcelles.
Friday, May 20, the young woman takes the elevator to go down to level -2 of the building where she was staying.
Suddenly, the elevator blocks before reaching the second basement and water enters the cabin then rises gradually.
While in this part of the building "the phone does not pick up", she manages by a miracle to contact her brother, who comes to her rescue.
Long minutes of anguish follow.
The firefighters delivered her more than forty minutes later, when she was already waist deep in water.

How could this "horror scene" happen in this brand new building, delivered 6 months ago?
Why didn't all the elevators in the building stop due to the water leak?
So many questions that Souhayla and his three brothers are asking themselves today.
Traumatized, they no longer wish to return to their apartment.
Recent housing but in which they no longer feel safe.
Their main objective now: to find a new home quickly and to be accompanied in this process.
