RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Fremont County Coroner Mark Stratmoen reports six people in the county have died this year from hypothermia.

The Ranger in Riverton reports (https://bit.ly/1rsXWT2 ) that Stratmoen says that is an unusually high number and account for more than half of the total accidental deaths in the county this year.

He says the county normally will see one hypothermia death in a year.

Stratmoen told county commissioners that greater public awareness about the issue can help prevent hypothermia deaths.
