NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The DuPage County coroner’s office says three people died shoveling snow following a winter storm that dumped up to 20 inches in the Chicago area.

According to the coroner, three men in their early 60s were shoveling snow on Sunday at their DuPage County homes when they collapsed. Deputy Chief Coroner Charlie Dastych says the men were taken to local hospitals, where they later died from heart-related issues.

He says anyone who suffers from a heart condition or has multiple risk factors, such as obesity or a poor diet, should reconsider shoveling wet, heavy snow.

Dastych says the men were from Lombard, Winfield and Naperville.
