A New Jersey woman has died after the electricity company cut power to her house, despite her paying $500 to her account only days before.
Desiree Washington says her 68-year-old mother Linda Daniels relied on an electric-powered oxygen tank to breathe, and she died of heart failure Thursday hours after Public Service Enterprise Group turned off the electricity at her Newark home.
Washington says $500 was paid to the company two days before, and her family had notified the company of her mother's medical issues.
PSE&G says they cut off power because of a lack of payments over several months.
The company says they were unaware of Daniels' medical needs, and they are reviewing their records.
Newark Police are investigating.
