Oak Forest Man, 80, Dies of Hypothermia, Cold Exposure
The man is at least the 21st this season to perish due to weather-related symptoms.
Frank Beck, of the 6000 block of Oakland Avenue, died Feb. 16 at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest at 5:57 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
Autopsy results showed hypothermia, cold exposure and heart disease led to Beck's death, Sun-Times Media reports.
Last week, a 79-year-old Burbank man died of similar causes. Earlier this month, an 86-year-old Oak Lawn woman died of hypothermia after she was found outside her South Meade Avenue home in the snow.
