WASHINGTON (AP) — An 82-year-old man who died after going into cardiac arrest while shoveling snow in front of his home in Washington is the first person whose death is related to the snowstorm in the city.

The District of Columbia's Chief Medical Examiner, Roger A. Mitchell Jr., announced the man's death during a press conference Sunday evening.

Mitchell did not release the man's name or say when he died or where in the city he lived. He encouraged people shoveling to take breaks and make sure that they keep hydrated.
