The entire Texas power grid was on the verge of collapse
The child and his family spent the night in an unheated trailer. After that, he died of hypothermia. The lawsuit was filed against a group of energy companies due to a power outage.
A family from the American state of Texas has filed a $ 100 million lawsuit against the Texas energy group ERCOT over a child frozen to death, writes TASS.
The company, which serves about 90% of consumers in the state and the local energy company Entergy, was sued by the parents of 11-year-old Christian Pavon. The boy died on Tuesday, February 16, in the city of Conroe.
The family spent the night in a trailer, which was left without heat and light due to massive power outages. After that, the child, according to relatives, died of hypothermia. The official cause of death has not yet been established.
Entergy expressed condolences over the boy’s death and added that local energy companies were doing the right thing by resorting to rolling blackouts as the entire Texas power grid was on the verge of collapse.
In Texas, frost and snowfall unprecedented for more than 20 years are raging. Today, less than 30 thousand residents of the state remain without electricity, whereas at the beginning of last week there were several million people without electricity.
