Shelton man dies while shoveling snow

From Shelton police:

On February 9, 2013 at approximately 4:00 AM Shelton Police, Shelton Fire and Shelton EMS responded to a residence on Darrin Dr for a medical emergency. Upon arrival a 49 year old male was found to be unconscious and not breathing. The male was pronounced dead on scene.

Preliminary investigation reveals the male was plowing his private driveway and his vehicle became stuck. It appears the male suffered a medical event while shoveling out the vehicle.

The male was located by a neighbor after his wife became alarmed he had not returned to their home. Roadways were nearly impassable and a snowmobile with a sled had to be used to help get the male to the ambulance.

The male will go to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

The name of the male is being withheld pending notification of family.
