Heat death reported in metro-east

   Metro-east officials say the death of a Madsion, Illinois man should serve as a reminder of the dangers of extreme heat.  

   Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn announced Monday that 56 year old Darold Mays died of heat stroke.  May suffered from heart and lung disease that made him more vulnerable, but hi  body temperature was over 101 when he had been found dead in an alley in the 1300 block of Klein Avenue in Venice.  

   Family members say that Mays was developmentally disabled and was known to venture out into the community to collect aluminum cans.

   Nonn says with temperatures forecast to be in the mid and upper 90s this week, it's important to be conscious of the heat's toll on healthy individuals during normal activities, but also to keep an eye on friends and family who may be more susceptible to the heat because of age or chronic health issues.

   Local leaders have put out the call to those in need and to those who can help. Cool Down St. Louis and Ameren kicked off their annual summer program to keep elderly and disabled St. Louisans safe from the deadly heat.

   Ameren donated the first 240 air conditioners with the hope that more units will be donated and more money raised to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.

   St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says donations are critical to this program's success.  "It is important to note that eventually, all the funds will be exhausted this year," Slay said.  "And remind you that 100 percent of proceeds, 100 percent of private donations go directly to helping someone in need. There are no administrative costs that come out of our donations."

MIAMI (AP) — This time Indiana didn't wilt in the final seconds.

After losing the NBA Eastern Conference finals opener in overtime to Miami, the Pacers kept their composure until the end and escaped with a 97-93 win over the Heat to even that series at a game apiece. All five Pacers starters hit double figures led by Roy Hibbert's 29 points and 10 rebounds.

Paul George scored 22 points, George Hill added 18 and David West finished with 13 for the Pacers.

LeBron James scored 36 points for the Heat, who got 17 points from Chris Bosh and 14 from Dwyane (dwayn) Wade. The Heat led 88-84 in the fourth quarter, then were outscored 13-5 the rest of the way.

Game 3 will take place Sunday night on the Pacers home court. The Pacers are 6-0 at home this postseason.

By the way, if you have wondered just how dominating the Heat have been this season, this was just their fourth loss in their last 50 games.
