Portage man dies while snow blowing



PAW
PAW, Mich. (Newschannel 3) - Michigan State Police are warning of the dangers
of all this snow after a Portage man dies while snow blowing.




He collapsed in front of his second home on 35 1/2 Street in
Paw Paw just before 4 p.m. Sunday.




State police tell Newschannel 3 this tragedy is a
weather-related one, the victim snow blowing his own driveway in Portage
earlier Sunday, then heading out to Paw Paw to continue working in the snow.




Michigan State Police say a neighbor called 9-1-1 after he
found his friend unconscious in his driveway with the snow blower still
running.




An ambulance was called and paramedics tried to revive the
man, but he unfortunately passed away, likely of a heart attack.




State police tell us the victim was trying to sell this home
in Paw Paw, and had been there working throughout the day. They say he didn't
have any medical conditions they were aware of, but did have the flu a week
earlier.




State police are reminding others to play it safe in this
latest round of winter weather, especially when it comes to handling all this
heavy snow.




"When it's like this, especially with the colder
weather, it can damage your lungs and in many cases it can be stressful when
you're not active in the beginning of the year and it can lead to a heart
attack," Trooper Anthony Turner says.




When shoveling or blowing snow, its best to do it in waves,
taking your time, and not lifting too much.
