The family of a boy frozen to death in Texas has filed a $ 100 million lawsuit against the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), a Texas energy group. This was reported by the KHOU TV channel.
11-year-old Christian Pavon died in Conroe after spending the night in a trailer that was left without heat and light due to massive power outages. The child’s family believes that he died from hypothermia.
The company said it was extremely saddened by the death of the child. “We are not allowed to comment because of the ongoing litigation,” the company said. They expressed confidence that local energy companies did the right thing by resorting to rolling blackouts.
Earlier, US President Joe Biden declared Texas a natural disaster zone due to abnormal weather. The politician promised to allocate funds from the federal budget to help the state. It will be provided from February 21, 2021 onward.
Due to the worst frost in more than 30 years, Texas has hit a food crisis. Due to the closure of outlets, many shops and restaurants are forced to throw away perishable and expired goods, while experiencing difficulties in supplying new food.
