Glenn Dale woman dies of apparent heart attack after shoveling snow

A Glenn Dale woman died of an apparent heart attack after shoveling snow on Monday afternoon, according to Prince George's County Fire and EMS Department officials.

Department spokesman Mark Brady said the woman, who was in her 60s, went into cardiac arrest after shoveling snow. She was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead, Brady said. The exact cause of death will be determined by a chief medical examiner, Brady said.

No other local jurisdictions have reported snow-related deaths from Monday's storm.

Earlier this month, two Howard County men died, reportedly of heart attacks, while shoveling snow during the Feb. 13 storm.
