New Port Richey, Florida -- "My father was a World War II veteran.  He has two purple hearts.  It makes my angry, yes."

Justin Ambrozia Jr. wants answers. Answers to why his 90-year-old father passed before he should have, dying early on Thursday, unable to recover from four days of hell.

Two weeks ago, the senior Ambrozia went to the Publix on Little Road near Trinity, but fell inside the store. 

According to the incident report, Ambrozia was escorted to his car because he was having trouble walking. Once he arrived home and pulled into his garage, his legs went numb and he couldn't move

He honked the horn for hours, but no one heard. He survived by drinking one small bottle of water and small food items he had purchased while at Publix. Four days later, he was discovered, and was taken to the hospital, but couldn't pull through.

"I wanna see some kind of justice for any wrongdoing done to my father," said Ambrozia Jr.

When 10 News last spoke to Publix, the grocery chain said it was investigating.

But that's not enough for Ambrozia's son.

"I want answers as to why my father was let out of the store with those kind of injuries."
