Thousands of people currently living in East London without water supply.
Residents took to Twitter this afternoon to say they were suffering from low water pressure or no supply at all.
Thames Water said on social media that they are aware of issues in eight of the 21 postal codes in East London.
They added, “Our engineers are investigating the site and will do their best to get things up and running as quickly as possible.”
As for the injured resident, Graf Sharma, 37, of Leatonston, told MailOnline that they have not had water since 4.30pm.
This meant that he and his wife Mina were unable to make formula for their six-month-old baby, Ishan, and had to rush to a nearby B&M store to buy bottled water.

Thames Water said it is aware of its customers in postal codes E6, E7, E10, E11, E12, E13, E15, E16 and E20.
Areas include parts of East Ham, Forestgate, Letoon, Stratford, Newham and Playsto.
Residents first reported a problem just before 5 PM this afternoon and the reason for that remains unclear.
“The problems started around 4.30 pm,” said Mr. Sharma, who works as a consultant. “There was no water.
It was a surprise, I hadn’t seen it before. I have not received any response from Thames Water. “
He said he had to rush to a store to buy water to make milk for his baby son, Ehsan.

They said that “professional engineers” are working on the problem
We had no choice, we had to go to B&M to pick up some bottles of water and there wasn’t much.
“There is still no water to flush the toilets, so we will probably go to our friends’ house if this is not corrected in the morning.”
The father, who is originally from India added: “ I have been in the UK for 12 years, and we are facing these problems in India but we are using rooftop water tanks that help you to survive but here if there is a problem you don’t have water on All to clean or flush the toilet.
He said he spent 30 minutes on the phone with Thames Water but switched off the phone when he was unable to reach.
Another affected resident told the company online, “We currently have no water at all, so please correct the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
A third added: “ Can you please inform us of the problem that caused such widespread disruption and when this will be fixed.
Despite the ongoing turmoil, some lukewarm residents have already made fun of the issue online
“ Water is the primary necessity and we need to know when we can run it through our taps again.
A Thames Water spokesperson told MailOnline: “ We are aware of the issue and our engineers are investigating.
“We are sorry for any disturbance and are working hard to get things back to normal as soon as possible.”
Despite the ongoing turmoil, some enthusiastic residents have already mocked the issue online.
One photo showed a “jug of fresh water” being sold on Ebay for £ 100.
Another quoted Thames Water tweet and joked “on today’s episode from East London”.
