A 68 year old man was found by his daughter burned beyond recognition inside a sauna in his North Miami beach condominium.
The family claims they were just about to celebrate the man identified as Dennis Antiporek’s 69th birthday.
The daughter, Laura Antiporek said that pieces of black skin were found on the floor inside the sauna and describes the heat as so intense she couldn’t breathe.
The family’s lawyer says that the man died of asphyxiation based on the temperatures inside.
The family claims the sauna had a malfunctioning timer and are filing lawsuits against the property owner, management company, and manufacturer of the sauna.
The family said that Antiporek did have some health issues that did not play a role in his death.
