Woman dependent on oxygen tank dies after company cuts power

Oxygen Machine Was Keeping Sick Woman Alive. Then Her Electricity Was Cut Off

Relatives said Daniels, 68, passed away from heart failure after Public Service Enterprise Group, or PSE&G, turned off her power because of an outstanding bill. "We put one ice pack here by her side and one on the other side", she said. We were fanning her.

Washington said her mother's home lost power about 10 a.m. Thursday.

In order to prevent deaths like Daniels', the NAACP has called for utility companies not to shut off power when it may affect residents' health, such as when the weather is extremely hot or cold, as well protections for elderly and disable customers who need electricity to run medical devices.

"She had just paid $500 two days before", Desiree told NJ.com. "And she's a senior". We asked them, "Why are you turning off her electric at the pole?"'

Kyrgios into Wimbledon third round
Kyrgios has overcome his inner demons and a mini foot-fault crisis to book his place in the Wimbledon third round. And all of the other players just put so much hard work (in) to be there.

"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. "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". "The truck did not come until the next day". Linda Daniels died after she was unable to use her electric powered tank after her power was cut at her New Jersey home.

"As part of our policy, PSE&G had notified this customer numerous times that their account was in arrears and that they would be scheduled for a service termination unless the account was made current", said company spokesman Jim Namitoka. "We are reviewing our records to determine what transpired".

New Jersey law prohibits utility companies from terminating service to households with a valid medical emergency.

Harry Maguire: the remarkable rise of England’s unlikely new hero
"I know loads of fans have come here and some have gone back home, but we are doing this for all of them". England play Sweden in the World Cup quarter-final in Samara at 3pm United Kingdom time on Saturday.

The family deny PSEG's claims that Daniels was behind with her payments.

They also paid another $500 on July 3, two days before Daniels' died.

Desiree said the PSE&G utility truck did not arrive until Friday morning - about 16 hours after her mother died. It's so sad she had to go like that.

Newark Police are investigating. "We want to ensure it doesn't happen again, and we can not have our senior population in jeopardy like that".
