Three southwest suburban men apparently suffered fatal heart attacks while shoveling snow over the weekend, the Southtown Star reports.

Will County Coroner Patrick K. O’Neil said all three men were shoveling before being found unresponsive.

A 57-year-old Bolingbrook man was pronounced dead Saturday at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital.

A 62-year-old Joliet man and a 63-year-old Joliet man both died Sunday at Saint Joseph Medical Center, O’Neil said.

O’Neil said despite the extreme cold no hypothermia cases had been reported to the coroner’s office as of 11 a.m. Monday.
