Gaza baby dies after respirator runs out of fuel
Gaza: A Gaza man says his baby died after the
generator powering his respirator ran out of fuel the first
known death linked to Gaza's energy crisis.
Abdul-Rahim Helou says his baby, Mohammed, relied on a
respirator to help him breathe. Because of 18-hour-day power
blackouts, Helou says he had used a gas-powered generator to
keep his baby alive.
Mohammed died overnight Friday.
Helou said today that he and his wife didn't realise how
much fuel they needed to keep their new generator going and it
ran out overnight.
