Conn. man dies in storm while shoveling snow
SHELTON, Conn. (AP) -- Shelton police say a 49-year-old man died during the snow storm, apparently while shoveling snow.
Police say they responded around 4 a.m. Saturday to a residence, where the man was found unconscious and pronounced dead. Police say a preliminary investigation reveals the man had been plowing his driveway, and his vehicle became stuck. They say it appears the man suffered a "medical event" while shoveling out the driveway.
Police say roadways were nearly impassable and a snowmobile with a sled had to be used to help get the man to the ambulance.
The Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner planned to do an autopsy. The man was not identified pending notification of next of kin.
