Cause of Death: Sunrise Valencia

On 17 August, 2011, Mr. Ronald Corn, son of Loretta Hooker, found his mother sitting in the patio of Sunrise Sterling Canyon Assisted Living of Valencia - sitting alone, without supervision, without shade, and in 100+ degree heat.  This scenario played out again on 24 August, 2011 - only this time the consequences were dire:  Ms. Hooker was found by her son, unresponsive and dehydrated.  She was transported, in full cardiac arrest, to a local hospital. The autopsy report referenced in the law suit states that at the time of death due to heatstroke her body temperature was 103.3 degrees.  The son has filed a wrongful death suit against Sunrise Sterling Canyon Assisted Living of Valencia.
