Chronicles Of Depression 2.0: #414: Then Die!

Welcome to your Drop Dead Future.

Dad Chains Himself To Meter To Save Girl

HILAND PARK, Fla. — In a desperate attempt to prevent his power from being turned off, a father chained himself to the meter outside his home saying his daughter, who requires a feeding tube and other electrical equipment, could die without electricity.

Tony Duncan chained himself to the meter Thursday fearing what will happen to his 5-year-old adopted daughter Makayla if they lose power. Gulf Power officials said the Duncans have not made payments on their electricity bill since July and owe about $2,000 and gave them until Friday morning to come up with the money. But an anonymous donor heard the news reports and paid the bulk of the bill.

Tony Duncan said he has been out of work for more than a year because he had several strokes and seizures and has been unable to collect unemployment or find a new job because of his medical condition.

Emphasis added by me.

And what happens next year?
