Woman Dies During Brooklyn Power Outage

A 57-year-old woman on a respiratory has died during a power outage at her housing complex in Brooklyn.

Elizabeth Ramos lived at the Spring Creek Towers, which suffered a blackout on Sunday morning that lasted about five hours.

She was already dead when the FDNY arrived.  Firefighters said it appeared she had been dead for some time.

It’s unclear whether her death was directly related to the power outage.  An autopsy is planned.
