Woman on oxygen tank dies after her power is cut off

Ailing Woman On Oxygen Tank Dies When Electric Company Cuts Off Power In Her Home Grandmother on oxygen dies after PSE&G cuts off her power, grieving family says

The 68-year-old, who family says remained "in good spirits" depended on an oxygen tank powered by electricity to breathe.

According to Accuweather.com, the temperature in Newark was in the 90s on Thursday afternoon. "It was unbearable", she said.

"We're saddened to hear that Ms. Daniels passed away yesterday".

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.

"We put one ice pack by her side and one on the other side", Daniels' daughter Desiree told 6ABC.

"She had just paid $500 two days before", Washington said. "And she's a senior".

The company added that the family had "not notified us of any medical circumstances in the home".

"We made numerous calls. We have a large family and everyone in our family was calling", Desiree said.

A source involved in the rescue mission who saw two of the four boys walk out of the cave told Reuters that they looked exhausted but healthy, adding that one even looked "vivacious and fresh".

"One rep told me to stop calling, that there were too many tickets in the system", Desiree told ABC 13.

Daniels' oxygen tank was powered by electricity and she succumbed to her condition seven hours after power was cut off to her home, CNN reported. 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.

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

"Because there was no response from the customer, the customer was shut off".

Police are investigating and PSEG said it would review its records.

"The point is they turned her lights off after she paid the bill", Desiree said. "And there are a lot of people like her".

They provided NJ Advance Media with a statement showing $500 was paid to PSE&G on July 3 - two days before the electric was turned off for nonpayment.

Desiree said the PSE&G utility truck did not arrive until Friday morning - about 16 hours after her mother died.

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.
