During the early hours of the morning, Ana Cardenas from El Paso heard a strange sound and got up to investigate. When she saw blood on her walls, bed, and face, she was horrified.

Since Cardenas had slept with the fan turning on, blood seeped where the fan was, which caused blood to travel towards the fan's blades, creating splatters on her bedroom walls.

She described seeing blood on her clothing as "gross" and felt "in shock," thinking that the experience wasn't real. When she called maintenance, they asked if she was sure, leading her to say blood was falling on her.

After making 911 calls, she learned the blood, which also covered her hair, was coming from her neighbor upstairs. According to Cardenas, the man was between 55-70 years old.

Firefighters broke into Cardena's neighbor's door and found the body exactly where her fan is positioned underneath. Despite having carpet, the blood dripped through to the ceiling, she added.

The incident traumatized Cardenas, who said she can't eat, sleep, or even be peaceful.

A police investigation determined her neighbor died naturally and was decomposing for approximately five to six days. The fan was taken down, and a pool of blood poured out, Cardenas recalled.

She checked into a hotel for a few days but is still seeking compensation for her damaged property from Cielo Vista Apartment management. Renter's insurance is not mandatory for renters, so she didn't have it.

Cardenas continued, saying that she didn't renew the apartment lease after living there for a year and eight months. However, she is still trying to find an apartment within her budget.
