JAMAICA, Queens — A Queens family was back together in their home this Christmas, but it almost didn't happen after a massive sewage backup in the neighborhood the day after Thanksgiving.

One family dealt with thousands in damage. There was no heat or hot water. They were forced to take showers at a hotel and sent their 4-year-old son away out of fear for his health.

Heat and hot water were restored in time for Christmas.
