Update, 4:06 p.m.
Detective Seargeant Kevin Ahern sent out a press release confirming the man's residence to be Darrin Drive. Police, Fire and EMS crews responded to a 4 a.m. medical emergency call. The man was found not breathing, unconsious and pronounced dead on scene.
"Preliminary investigation reveals the male was plowing his private driveway and his vehicle became stuck. It appears the male suffered a medical event while shoveling out the vehicle," the release reads.
"The male was located by a neighbor after his wife became alarmed he had not returned to their home. Roadways were nearly impassable and a snowmobile with a sled had to be used to help get the male to the ambulance."
The Shelton Police Dept. reports that a 49-year-old man died while shoveling his driveway early Saturday morning.
“During the height of the storm he was out shoveling and he collapsed,” said Chief Joel Hurliman. “Getting him to an ambulance was very difficult and EMS had to use a snow mobile and I’m told possibly a sled.”
He said the man, whose identity is not being released as not all family members have been notified, probably had a heart attack "but we don’t have the confirmation on that."
Hurliman would say the man lived in the Huntington section of Shelton. The Valley Indy reports his home was on Darrin Drive.
