Six people are dead and dozens have been sent to the emergency room after a nursing home in Florida failed to fix its air conditioning system during a prolonged power outage in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills evacuated more 115 residents Wednesday morning when a transformer powering the facility’s air conditioning system experienced a failure as a result of the storm. Temperatures had reached as high as 90 degrees in Hollywood Hills this week, and residents at the facility faced dehydration, heat exhaustion and serious respiratory conditions, according to The New York Times. \
