95-Year-Old Woman is Del.'s 3rd Heat-related Death

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Public health officials say a third heated-related death has been confirmed in Delaware.

The Department of Health and Social Services said Tuesday that the medical examiner had ruled that the death of a 95-year-old New Castle County woman was heat related.

Officials say the woman was found dead in her Newark home on Sunday, and that heat exposure was a factor in her death.

Two people died during last week's heat wave.
