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, she died of hypothermia. The lawsuit was filed against a group of energy companies due to a power outage.
A family from the US state of Texas has filed a lawsuit for $ 100 million against the Texas energy company ERCOT because of a frozen child, TASS reports.
The company, which serves about 90 percent of the state’s consumers, and local energy company Entergy have been 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 mass 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, adding that local energy companies had done the right thing by fanning power outages as the entire Texas power grid was on the verge of collapse.
Frosts and snowfalls have been raging in Texas for more than 20 years. Today, at least 30,000 people are without electricity, up from several million at the beginning of last week.
