Officials link 5 Indiana deaths to winter storm

Indianapolis — Officials say this week's heavy snow and subzero temperatures possibly led to the deaths of at least five people in central Indiana.

Four of those deaths have happened in Indianapolis, with another in Anderson.

The Indianapolis Star reports those deaths include one man who collapsed Sunday shoveling snow, two elderly women who fell outside Monday while tending to their dogs and a man who died Monday after collapsing in the street.

Marion County chief deputy coroner Alfie Ballew says it wasn't known yet whether they died from over-exertion or exposure to the cold.

Madison County Coroner Marian Dunnichay tells The Herald Bulletin a 66-year-old Anderson man collapsed and died of heart troubles while shoveling snow Sunday.
