The Heat Has Killed at Least Two New Yorkers This Summer


The heatwave finally subsided somewhat this weekend, but, sadly, not without claiming a victim: Medical examiners say a 78-year-old Brooklyn man died from hyperthermia on Friday, when the temperature reached 96 degrees in the city. A 57-year-old Staten Island man died for the same reason earlier this month. Drink water, check on your neighbors, and think cooling thoughts, please.
