Couple Killed by Heat Not Neglected, Son Says

A Lehigh County husband and wife who died of hyperthermia were visited by family and caregivers

A did have family and caregivers looking after them, according to a Morning Call report.

Lillian Kuzmak, 91, on Apple Road in Weisenberg Township near Fogelsville on July 9 by a home health care worker.

Kuzmak's husband, Joseph, 90, died later at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The Kuzmak's Lehigh County home has air conditioning but it was not turned on.

The couple's son says his parents were not obsessive about saving energy and that someone visited their home every day except Sunday, which is apparently when the heat wave took its toll.

This poor man should not have to defend himself He lost both parents at the same time. Don't make it political, it is personal. My sympathy goes out to this family.
