5 dead at Florida nursing home after Irma knocks out power

Five people died Wednesday morning when an air conditioning issue forced the evacuation of a Florida nursing home, reports say. No information has been released on the conditions of the other residents. Police are going to the 42 other assisted living facilities in the area to check on those other residents. The building has been sealed off while police investigate. Aerial footage showed patients sitting outside in wheelchairs and others being taken out of the facility on stretchers.
