SCHUYLKILL COUNTY — Three deaths are being blamed on the blizzard, and all are in Schuylkill County.

The Schuylkill County coroner said three people died from what he believes to be heart attacks while shoveling snow the last two days.

According to the coroner, an 83-year-old woman from near Schuylkill Haven was found Wednesday under 10 inches of snow, her shovel underneath her body.

The coroner said two men died in Ringtown as well. One man died Tuesday, the other Wednesday.

Their names have not been released until family has been notified.


  • Where are all the people who said they love that the blizzard came?

    It’s really inconsiderate to the elderly and others to boast about how much you love the blizzard, when people have lost their lives because you were thrilled about playing in the snow.

  • grumpy old man

    The Schuylkill county cub/boy scouts need to offer a program for shoveling out elders so 83 year old women arent found frozen to death under 10 inches of snow. Despicable!
