Woman on oxygen tank dies after her power is cut off

If Daniels' family could prove they had provided the utility company with information about her illness and the necessity of an electric powered oxygen tank, the provider would be in violation for shutting off her power and subjecting Daniels to the heat in her condition. Linda Daniels died after she was unable to use her electric powered tank after her power was cut at her New Jersey home.

According to Daniels's daughter Desiree Washington, on Thursday various members of the family tried to alert the power company about Daniels's precarious situation. On Thursday, temperatures also reached 90 degrees, leading the family members to consistently apply ice packs and fan the 68-year-old to keep her cool. "She suffered and she passed right in front of us. It was so hot in here, she couldn't breathe - it was unbearable", she said. Her family told local media they used a smaller oxygen reserve while her power was shut off, and called emergency services when the reserve ran out.

"We made numerous calls".

PSEG said in a statement that the power was cut from Daniels' home due to "lack of payment over several months".

'And she's a senior. "We extend our honest condolences to her family", Karen A. Johnson said. "We have a large family and everyone in our family was calling", Desiree said.
