Family of young boy who died of cold demand $ 100 million from the electricity company | World


Sheet Houston Chronicle On February 22, it was reported that Cristian Pineda (11 years old) was sleeping with his brother on a bed in a family of 5 members in the town of Conroe (Texas) when the power went out. This is thought to lead to hypothermia and death of Pineda.

At that time, the Texas Electric Power Authority (ERCOT), responsible for power supply management in the state, decided to cut off many apartments including the Pineda family.

Family attorney Tony Buzbee accused electricity supply company Entergy and ERCOT of making a “profit-based” power cut off decision.

“This boy who saw snow for the first time on February 15, died the next day (February 16). ERCOT and electricity companies like Entergy are responsible for Pineda’s death, ”said the lawyer Buzbee.

The family added that the autopsy of Pineda was not complete, but confirmed that the boy did not have any medical history or unusual signs before death.

Last week, the blizzard brought icy weather to much of central America, with Texas being one of the worst hit states after the disaster, with millions of people without power and the water supply infrastructure system was severely damaged.

Texas funeral hosts are “exhausted” amid the Covid-19 pandemic

In response, in a statement, ERCOT said it has yet to review the lawsuit. “We are sorry that the people of Texas have suffered the consequences for the past week.”

ERCOT argues that some private utility companies are forced to shut off the power and call it the “right choice” to avoid power outages across Texas.

Severe cold spells cause grid overload and power outages are identified as due to skyrocketing electricity demand combined with power infrastructure failures.

The state of Texas operates its own power grid, so it is not subject to federal government regulations. As a result, much of Texas’s electrical infrastructure is not secured to withstand inclement weather.
