  • Ailing Woman On Oxygen Tank Dies When Electric Company Cuts Off Power In Her Home

But Desiree Washington, Daniels' daughter, says they'd informed the company of her mother's medical issues in writing-the Washington Post notes, per the state's Board of Public Utilities, a utility can't shut off electricity to a residence if a "valid medical emergency" exists-and family members showed reporters a copy of a statement showing a $500 payment had been made Tuesday.

Daniels has been in hospice care with congestive heart failure since the middle of April. "And she's a senior". Paramedics brought a portable unit to the house while Daniels' family called the utility company and pleaded with them to turn the power back on.

"We put one ice pack here by her side and one on the other side".

"We panicked. They cut the power off on what had to be the hottest day of the summer", she said.

Another woman in NY lost three children after a candle she used to light her home after losing power started a fire, and a man in MI died of hypothermia after his power was shut off.

The power was apparently shut off because Linda had fallen behind on payments. "They had not notified us of any medical circumstances in the home." . There was a delinquent balance on their account, but they were trying to pay it down.

"Extreme heat and cold with climate change will only make inequality and injustice worse", Cecil Corbin-Mark of WE ACT for Environmental Justice said following the NAACP report.

Namiotka said the family had not notified the utility company about medical issues until after the service had been disconnected.

"We are reviewing our records to determine what transpired", Namiotka told NJ.com. "They told us they would be rolling a truck". PSEG said in part, "Because there was no response from the customer, the customer was shut off".

"The point is they turned her lights off after she paid the bill", Washington told NJ.com.

Power to Daniels' home was restored the day after she died. "And there are a lot of people like her".

According to the Daniels family, the power went out - not only knocking out the oxygen machine but the house's air conditioning - at around 10 a.m. Thursday. "My mother was a taxpayer for 46 years".

In addition to a son and daughter, Linda Daniels leaves behind five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, her family said.
