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

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

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.

PSE&G said they cut off power because of a lack of payments over several months. Eventually, Daniels' heart failed.

Linda's daughter, Desiree was by her side that day. "We extend our honest condolences to her family", Karen A. Johnson said.

Her family said Daniels is locally famous for her secret pecan cake recipe and her passion for serving others and the community.

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

Daniels reportedly fell behind on a $1,800 bill in May. But according to 6ABC and NJ.com, there is evidence she was working to pay off her balance.

We will have to do something with our players to play against them and individually our players will have to play well'. Cherchesov noted, "Talking about criticism, if they trusted us or not, we trusted ourselves".

The power to the home has been restored, but the grieving family doesn't understand why the utility company cut off electricity to the house.

But Washington says $500 was paid to the utility two days before the power was shut off. PSEG did not say whether they received that payment. "And she's a senior". We asked them, "Why are you turning off her electric at the pole?"' She said the utility company said they were on their way to the home but no one ever came. 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. "She was gasping until the time she died". "We encourage customers who have medical issues to contact us so that we can note their circumstances on their accounts", Namiotka said.

While there will be a complete investigation of this matter, our records indicate that this account was severely in arrears and we made at least 15 attempts to notify the customer since January, 2018, including two visits to the residence prior to the disconnection. "In New York State, we have some of the highest electricity costs in the nation, and we need more low-income customers and communities of color represented on the Public Service Commission and involved in energy policy decision-making and regulation".

Linda Daniels relied on an oxygen tank powered by electricity.

As NJ.com reported, Daniels died seven hours after her home's power was cut.

Newark police are investigating the incident, according to the Associated Press.
