Frantic 9-1-1 calls reveal the chaos inside a Florida nursing home where 14 residents died in sweltering post-Hurricane Irma heat.

The nursing home in Hollywood Hills lost power during the hurricane.

It had no air conditioning for three days and the people inside were suffering.

Those 14 people died from heat related injuries while another 140 were evacuated.

The state has since shut that nursing home down.
