Ninety-year-old Cecilia Franco died early Monday morning, almost a month after Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills' air conditioning broke for several days, and the care facility did not evacuate patients.

The Miami Herald said Ms Franco's husband Miguel Antonio Franco, who also lived at the home, died on September 13.

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, in a letter, notified the state that it let 245 employees go on September 20, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
