4th heat-related death recorded in Philadelphia

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities say a fourth heat-related death has been recorded in Philadelphia during the current heat wave.

A spokesman for the city medical examiner's office said Sunday that heat was a factor in the death of a 72-year-old west Philadelphia man whose other conditions included diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

Officials earlier said heat was a factor in the death of a 59-year-old north Philadelphia man, a 67-year-old north Philadelphia woman and an 82-year-old northeast Philadelphia woman.

In addition to those four deaths during the current heat wave, there have been four other heat-related deaths this year.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for the city until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
