South Bend family grateful to have electricity back

Posted:

Many areas in South Bend are still without electricity, but Curtis Lewark says his is finally on.

Tuesday, FOX28 met with Lewark who was struggling to take care of his elderly mother without electricity. He says she has an electric bed that turns her, so the day without electricity was challenging.

Tuesday night, a viewer called with a generator he was offering to the Lewark family. "I'm amazed that anyone would even go that far to help someone," says Lewark.

Lewark says he was ready to take the generous man up on the offer, but around 10 am Wednesday his electricity came back on. "It's a relief. It's back to the normal daily routines around here."

Lewark says he has a fan on his mom now and the bed is getting aired up and ready for her.
