WLOX Viewer Gives Disabled Grandmother AC Repair Help

There's a happy ending to a story Keli Rabon first reported earlier this week in Ocean Springs.

Sharon Troutman, who has several medical disabilities, had been suffering in the sweltering heat after her air conditioning unit quit working and her mobile home park didn't allow window units.

She couldn't afford to fix her central air, but the folks at One Hour Air in Gulfport saw the story and came to her rescue.

A repairman fixed the outside unit Thursday and installed a new coil inside.

"We called her up and asked if we could be of assistance. And we came and put her in another unit and a new coil and got her cooling down. She needed it pretty bad. It was pretty bad in there," said Henry Munoz with One Hour Air Conditioning

"Means a lot. And I really, really, really thank them. God will really bless them," Troutman said.

Troutman had been relying on fans to try and keep cool. She has medical conditions ranging from diabetes to emphysema.
