After Kenneka Jenkins death, Chicago to punish hotels for unsecured freezer areas

Interesting developments in Chicago this week. According to  legislators,   officials want to penalize and fine hotels in Chicago (presumably, to prevent another death similar to Kenneka’s death in their own city)  that don’t place emergency systems of some sort to notify staff  that someone may be in a locked or otherwise troublesome freezer area.

Officials confirmed to The Daily News that under the proposed legislation, hotels, would be fined anywhere from $1,000 to $2,5000 a day for under represented signage or information about entering freezer or otherwise restricted areas of hotels.
