Man dies after shoveling snow for girlfriend, cousin says

Posted:
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WISN) -

A man died Sunday afternoon shortly after shoveling snow for his girlfriend, the man's cousin said.

A relative said the 52-year-old collapsed after returning to the apartment near North 29th Street and West Wisconsin Avenue.

There was no official word as of 8 p.m. as to what caused the man's death, but his cousin said heart disease runs in the family.

"We trust in God. We know God will get us through this, but we also have to be mindful that God put doctors in our lives for a reason, and that's why we're supposed to get our health checked," Michael Hill told our Milwaukee affiliate, WISN. 

A medical examiner was seen at the apartment complex. Additional information is expected Monday.
