Dozens Reported Dead In Venezuela After Mass Blackout Reaches Four Days | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Dozens Reported Dead In Venezuela After Mass Blackout Reaches Four Days

Much of Venezuela is still in the dark — now four days running — after the worst blackout on modern record in Latin America enveloped the country last Thursday evening. And as of Saturday, Reuters reported at least 17 deaths at hospitals across the country attributable to the power outage, given many hospitals are now for days completely reliant on back-up generators to keep life saving ventilators and other medical devices going. Other reports have claimed multiple dozens of deaths across the country, especially in hospital neonatal units.

Embattled socialist president Nicolas Maduro has continued to blame the crisis on an act of "sabotage" by the United States at the Guri hydroelectric dam, for which he's mobilized troops to protect the national electricity system for the duration of the power outage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this mass blackout is just too cute. I tend to agree with those that this was an act of sabotage.
