Woman on oxygen machine dies after power company cuts off electricity

Linda Daniels died Thursday after the terminally-ill patient’s power was turned off

Linda Daniels had congestive heart failure.

Records show Daniels' family were in the process of paying down her debt, paying $750 between April and July. Last Thursday, as the summer temperature reportedly shot into the 90s, Daniels's electricity was cut off by the local power company, PSE&G.

Linda Daniels relied on an oxygen tank powered by electricity. Ms Daniels died an hour after paramedics left the home, according to KMOV, however it is unclear why they didn't continue to provide assistance.

She added, "I'm ex-military, but I couldn't even take a breath". We were fanning her.

An overdue electric bill proved deadly for a New Jersey grandmother who depended on oxygen to survive. Since Linda's primary oxygen, which plugs in, didn't work, they used a smaller reserve, and when that was empty, they called EMS. Daniels died an hour after the medical team departed.

"She was scared, and she was holding our hands tightly", said Desiree Washington, Daniels' daughter. "But we couldn't pump the oxygen".

The power was apparently shut off because Linda had fallen behind on payments. Since May, the account owed around $1,800, according to ABC 7.

Daniels' family, however, disputes her payments were behind to the point necessitating a shutdown.

In addition to a son and daughter, Linda Daniels leaves behind five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, her family said. There was a delinquent balance on their account but they were trying to pay it down.

"There was no warning, no notice", he said.

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

'She suffered and she passed right in front of us. "They cut the power off on what had to be the hottest day of the summer".

New Jersey utility customers who have medical or financial issues can obtain help from a variety of sources, according to the Board of Public Utilities.

State regulations prohibit utility companies from cutting services for non-payment if a medical emergency exists.

PSEG said it is reviewing its records.

Namiotka said the family had not notified the utility company about medical issues until after the service had been disconnected. "They told us they would be rolling a truck".

'And she's a senior. "And there are a lot of people like her". She said the utility company said they were on their way to the home but no one ever came. He did not give further details.

At the hospital in Chiang Rai, green canvas sheets had been put up to block the entrance from view.
