At least 3 Ohio deaths linked to freezing weather

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state says at least three Ohio deaths are linked to dangerously cold weather that closed schools, caused power outages and broke water pipes.

Two of those deaths were in northwest Ohio. A 75-year-old man died of hypothermia in an Allen County home that reportedly lacked heat, and his wife was in critical condition, being treated for hypothermia. In Wauseon, a 90-year-old woman died after her car got stuck in snow and she tried to walk home.

The death of a 58-year-old man found near an abandoned Cleveland home also was attributed to exposure.

Causes hadn't been confirmed in at least three more deaths: an Akron man found in his driveway, a man found on a frozen lake in Guernsey County and a woman at a trailer park near Athens.
