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.
