6 dead at South Florida nursing home after Irma caused AC failure

Hosted by

Six people, three of them in their 70s died in a Hollywood, Florida nursing home that had no air conditioning after Hurricane Irma knocked out power and disabled a back-up generator. Mayor Josh Levy told CNN, "We're all dumbfounded as to how this could happen, knowing there are so many medical opportunities for medical care... It begs the question, how do we prepare these facilities for a multi-day power outage in the heat of summer?” Anthony Man, who is covering Hurricane Irma for the Florida Sun Sentinel, says the deaths have produced lots of finger pointing.
