FLUSHING, Queens (WABC) -- There is another Legionnaires' scare in New York City this summer, this time, in Queens.

Officials say they're testing the water distribution system at a Flushing NYCHA complex.

Two residents got sick over a 12-month period.

One of those people is still in the hospital.

The Health Department says there is no need to worry, the risk of infection among other tenants is low.
