Re: Twin Brothers Die when Breathing Ventilators Fail in Power Outage

Very sad, but, with the bond twins have, I guess it should have been they died together.

I sincerely hope they weren't in distress and too much pain for too long

I'm pretty sure that's an area with a lot of T-storms power outages, why the parents would not have decent working generators is beyond me.

Those back up system should have been checked, frequently. So I'm not too impressed with the parents right now.
Poor kids
Maybe the parents were tired of all the work and bills and were kinda waiting, kinda wishing for this to happen even if just subconsciously.

Re: Twin Brothers Die when Breathing Ventilators Fail in Power Outage

I dated a guy with muscular dystrophy at one time. He had a very severe form at age 28 he was dependent on the ventilator to live. There was a rainstorm one night and the power went out for several hours. If his family hadn't instructed me on how to use the backup power supply, he would've died too. It's sad that these twins died the way they did. My ex-boyfriend told me it was the most horrible feeling, struggling to breathe.

You never know...can't imagine the stress/strain over the years. I couldn't do it, meaning let those boys suffer like that.

Re: Twin Brothers Die when Breathing Ventilators Fail in Power Outage

Isnt it amazing the technology we have today? Its crazy to think that the only reason they lived so long is because of electricity
