Dead After Evacuation of Hollywood Nursing Home Left Without Power After Irma

Hollywood, Florida police said the Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills is being evacuated due to cooling issues.

Five Florida nursing home residents are dead after they were left inside building without air condition and became sick.

Dave Long, a fix man, told WPLG that the building's air conditioning unit fell out during Hurricane Irma.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief confirmed the deaths Wednesday morning during a news conference. "Three occurred at the facility and two, on arrival to the hospital, were pronounced deceased". The nursing home has apparently been without air conditioning since the storm.

The chief of Hollywood police said a criminal investigation has been opened up into the deaths of the residents, but did not offer any further details.

"There's nothing we can do", employee Dave Long told WLPG-TV. "We've been calling and calling".

Firefighters are helping evacuate about 100 people from the nursing home.

Following Irma, however, temperatures in Florida got hot and humid.

Boats are seen after being blown from the dock into the marsh after Hurricane Irma passed through in St Marys, Georgia, U.S., September 12, 2017.
