MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating three deaths believed to be connected to heavy snowfall over the weekend.

According to the office, a 69-year-old Shorewood man with a history of heart issues died Sunday afternoon after shoveling snow. Officials say a 62-year-old West Allis man who has a history of high blood pressure and cholesterol died Sunday night after he collapsed while snow blowing.

The office reports the third snow-related death happened Monday afternoon, following an incident involving a 64-year-old Milwaukee man with a history of heart disease.

A foot of snow was recorded at General Mitchell International Airport following the winter storm that began Saturday night and continued into Sunday evening.
