Video: Flint, Michigan resident speaks on lack of services for poisoned residents
17 May 2016
Keri Webber’s family has been poisoned with lead in their tap water over the almost two years that the city of Flint, Michigan drew its drinking water from the polluted Flint River. Both her husband and two daughters suffered serious medical effects not only from lead poisoning, but also from the outbreak of legionella bacteria in the city’s water supply.
In this video, Webber speaks on the real situation facing the 100,000 residents of the city and contrasts it to the “lies and spin” coming from public officials.
