Family: Woman on oxygen dies after power cut off to her home

Eventually, Daniels' heart failed.

News 12 New Jersey reported that Daniels had been in hospice care since mid-April with congestive heart failure.

But the circumstances surrounding Daniels' death last week were not tied to her ailments alone, according to her family.

Meanwhile the family say they made multiple calls to the power company, begging them to turn the power back on.

When the power went out, so did her electricity-powered oxygen tank, which she needed to be able to breathe. "She was trying to catch her breath". "She suffered and she passed right in front of us".

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 reason for the New Jersey great-grandmother's death, per her family: PSE&G turned off her electricity due to an unpaid bill.

Recalling what she says a PSE&G worker told them, Daniels continued: 'One rep told me to stop calling, that there were too many tickets in the system. When the unit ran out, EMS was called to the house.

Linda Daniels (seen here with one of her granddaughters) died last week after PSE&G turned off the electric to her home.

Hanke said that Niantic will incorporate learnings from both Ingress and Pokemon Go into the sequel to improve on it. The anime will feature characters Makoto and Sarah, who are on the run from a third character, Jack.

In the hours between, family members rushed to cool down the failing patient. "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.

"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.

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

PSE&G said in a statement to CNN that they were "saddened to hear that Ms. Daniels passed away" and that they tried at least 15 times to contact the family about their bill over the past seven months.
